At LVPS, we believe reading is everything. It underpins all other areas of the curriculum and becoming a competent reader is proven to increase opportunities later in life. And on top of that, it's great fun too!

In Key Stage 1, we use a high quality, systematic, synthetic phonics programme called Read Write Inc, which has a track record of effectiveness because of its rigour and comprehensiveness. Children are taught consistently to use phonics as the route to reading unknown words. More information can be found in the documents below.


In Key Stage 2, we run the Accelerated Reader scheme and your child will bring their AR book home with them. If you would like more information on this, please click here or speak to your child's teacher. 

In addition to this, they will have their main reading scheme book, which should be read with an adult at least three times per week, though ideally on a nightly basis. Please ensure you sign your child's reading diary each time you read with them.
