Reading Intent

Reading - Intent, Implementation and Impact


At Arbury Primary School, we believe that reading is the bedrock of our curriculum and we aim to ensure that by the end of their primary education, all pupils are able to read fluently and with confidence and that, through our engaging and carefully planned reading curriculum, our children develop an intrinsic love of reading.

We aim for our pupils to develop the following essential skills:

  • Excellent phonic knowledge and skills.
  • Fluency and accuracy in reading across a wide range of contexts throughout the curriculum.
  • Knowledge of an extensive and rich vocabulary.
  • An excellent comprehension of texts.
  • The motivation to read for both study and for pleasure.
  • Extensive general knowledge developed through having read a rich and varied range of texts.
