Reading | Forest Edge Learning Federation

We really do believe that every child is a reader! 

Our team ensures the richest diet of reading for every child, through some key approaches:


  • Commitment to a vibrant ethos of Reading for Pleasure across all 3 schools;
  • Dynamic teaching of Phonics from the very start of your child's time with us;
  • Placing a quality text at the heart of every English unit in-class, meaning writing outcomes emulate the best written and film stimuli;
  • Regular in-house and consultant-driven CPD for teachers and Teaching Assistants;
  • Blended Guided and Whole-Class Reading sessions;
  • Coverage of all National Curriculum domains, such as vocabulary, retrieval, inference and summarising;
  • Rigorous assessment of reading domains, ensuring gaps are addressed;
  • Collaboration with Hampshire School Library Service.

This video will help you understand how we teach the different

reading 'domains', so that every child becomes a skilled reader....

We love to shout about our love of reading widely and for pleasure... 

Our 'Reading Spine' lists quality children's literature

that we feel carries important messages and well-crafted writing... 

We carefully map out reading texts to inspire writing and discussion.

Here is a sample of the way we plan for these:

One quality text can inspire wonderful writing outcomes...
