Reading Support Counts

We offer professional development opportunities on reading at ARE and Greater Depth for each year group as well as in-school support for Guided Reading, Shared Reading and Dialogic Book Talk; all of which can be modelled in your setting. Beyond this, we provide guidance on moderating standards and progression of reading skills across the school.

Our in-school Reading Surgeries support teachers in their provision, practice and pedagogy in the teaching of reading. Our detailed self-assessment tools and audits not only help identify areas for further development, but also set the tone for cultivating a ‘reading for pleasure’ culture in your school.
