All pupils have access to a variety of age and developmentally appropriate texts for reading, some of which are from nationally recognised schemes others of which are used to promote engagement from pupils own specific interests. Key texts are identified and introduced throughout the curriculum at developmentally appropriate points as identified in our reading spine that enhance and complement our thematic approach to learning.
