Readers Count

Readers Count is for children who will benefit from extra support to help them keep on track with their reading.  A specially trained Readers Count teacher gives children at least three 30 minute lessons a week for a term, individually or in pairs, and a teaching assistant delivers short follow up activities. After a detailed diagnostic assessment, the teacher plans a tailored programme for each child. Rigorous, lively and stimulating lessons develop phonic knowledge and skills, text comprehension and vocabulary development.

Readers Count:

  • provides targeted use of the Pupil Premium
  • supports the new National Curriculum for English
  • develops phonic knowledge and skills
  • promotes text comprehension and vocabulary development
  • creates an ‘in-house specialist’ literacy teacher who helps to raise standards for all children
  • provides detailed evidence of progress and impact
