The Importance of Reading At Kings Meadow Primary School



The teaching of reading is of top priority at our school.  

We ensure that we are;


  • Foster a love of reading and sharing stories, poems and rhymes to develop vocabulary and comprehension.
  • Have a secure, systematic, synthetic phonics programme taught from the beginning of reception.
  • Create opportunities for children to read and reread books that match the phonics stage taught.
  • Effective use of assessment to quickly identify children who need targeted support.
