Reading Intent Statement

At Thurlby Primary Community Academy, it is our intention to give the teaching and learning of reading the prominence it requires and, in order for children to succeed in education and later life, reading must be a priority. Pupils’ reading ability and knowledge acquisition are of great importance. At Thurlby, we have built a clear and sequenced progression of reading skills and content to ensure new knowledge builds on what has previously been taught. Our reading curriculum is ambitious and designed, through carefully chosen texts, authors and activities, to give all readers the knowledge and cultural capital to reach their potential and succeed in life.
