At Red Oak Primary School we use a range of schemes including Read Write Inc, Oxford Reading tree and Rigby Star to help our children with their reading. Children are assessed twice a year using a SALFORD reading test. This identifies a child's reading age, understanding and ability to ensure they are making rapid progress. Read Write Inc. also monitors progress of individual children every half term.

Reading at home


Reading at home is one of the easiest but most important ways in which you can help your child. As you share books you are helping improve your child's reading skills and also showing them how important and enjoyable reading is. We are very fortunate at Red Oak Primary to have an extensive and diverse library where the children can access a whole range of reading books and literature. We believe it is vitally important that our pupils continue to enjoy their reading out of school.

Here are some useful websites and online resources to help you choose books for children and better understand the importance of reading with your child:

Cbeebies books at home

Oxford Owl


Mrs Mad

Love Reading

Silly Books

BBC Parental Reading Support

If you would like any more information on helping your child read at home please drop in to school and collect one of our 'Parent Guide to Reading' leaflets.
