Worth Primary School

Proud member of Dealt


At Worth Primary School, reading is a top priority and is a key driver for our curriculum. Reading enables knowledge and knowledge is power to learn and grow.


At Worth Primary school we:

  • Recognise that being an expert reader is a life skill for every child.​
  • Believe that every child can learn to read and to love reading – with the right teaching, encouragement and enriched reading environments.​
  • Place reading, and books, at the heart of our curriculum.​
  • Invest in staff training and support through Read, Write Inc, The National College and through our academy DEALT, so that all our staff can deliver outstanding provision.​
  • Build time for children to read independently (D.E.A.R time), for pleasure, within the school day.​
  • Invest in quality resources so that our children can be enthused and inspired.​
  • Encourage parental involvement so our school reading culture extends to the home environment (though Sam the Reading Ranger).​
  • Have developed a clear and progressive whole school strategy for teaching the knowledge and skills of reading and reading for pleasure.​

In order to ensure we are teaching reading in its fullest sense we have separated the teaching into three strands:​

Fluency, Comprehension and Enjoyment​
