Reading Recovery

Reading Recovery is an intensive catch up programme for children in Year 1 and Year 2 who need help with reading and writing.

The aim is to raise their levels in line with the class average.

A maximum of 8 children a year are selected depending on the results of their assessments, date of birth and suitability for the programme. The intervention consists of a half hour reading and writing lesson every day with our Reading Recovery teacher for between 12 and 20 weeks. Reading and writing homework is given daily and the programme works best when parents actively engage and support their children.
