Reading At St. Augustine's​

We are passionate about reading at St Augustine's. Reading is the key to a good education and future economic success. Being ​able to read well opens doors in life!

We teach word reading through a phonics programme called Read, Write Inc. Mrs Fox is our RWI manager and works hard to ensure high quality teaching across the school. Mrs Fox is constantly assessing and tracking progress to ensure our children learn very well. We teach comprehension through ​English, Guided Reading and cross-curricular lessons. We hear children read one-to-one regularly, as it is an opportunity to assess progress and gives children a chance to practise their skills. For those children who need extra or specialised support, we provide very successful intervention programmes to ensure that every child can be a successful reader.

We want all our children to go on to Secondary school being able to read fluently with a high level of understanding. We want our children to love reading, to enjoy settling down with a book, to be able to talk about books and authors. We know that the more a child reads, the better he/she will get. And a child who reads out of school is thirteen times more likely to read above the expected level for their age.

We can't do this on our own. That is ​why we have clear expectations of how our parents can support. We need the children to read every night to an adult and use the Home Reading Diary to record this.

We appreciate that it is not always easy supporting your child with their reading. Take a look at our ​'Parents Zone' section for ideas and resources.
