At Swavesey Primary School we are committed to raising standards, for all pupils, in reading and strongly adhere to the following statements from the Department of Education’s Reading Framework: "Reading is fundamental to education and proficiency in reading, writing and spoken language is vital for pupils’ success. Through these, they develop communication skills for education and for working with others: in school, in training and at work. Pupils who find it difficult to learn to read are likely to struggle across the curriculum, since English is both a subject in its own right and the medium for teaching."

School Aims and Aspirations for pupils in reading:

• Establish consistently good practice in the teaching of reading

• Develop a love of reading through promoting reading for pleasure

• Foster a positive reading environment in school and at home

• Gain experience and knowledge of high calibre reading books and authors, including fiction, non-fiction and poetry

• Aim for all children, by the end of year 6, to be sufficiently fluent in reading and read effortlessly and with enjoyment
