Manorfield Primary School

Reading Guidance

Reading

We believe that every child should leave Manorfield Primary School being able to read.

To achieve this, we must ensure that all children reach age-related expectations not just at the end of every year, but at the end of every term.

Any child who does not meet age-related expectations at any point, must make accelerated progress in order to ‘catch up’.
