Reading Skills

at Green Ridge Primary Academy



As reading is a complex skill with many components, Green Ridge has adopted a comprehensive and consistent approach to the teaching of these skills throughout the academy. We believe that reading is a valuable and rewarding experience and that the importance of laying a firm foundation in this crucial area will allow children to access all areas of the curriculum successfully. We believe that success in reading opens doors to a world of knowledge. It is essential that teaching focuses on developing pupils’ competence in both dimensions; different kinds of teaching are needed for each.
