Reading Strategy


Our Intent for Reading at Trinity High School is that all students leave the school confident in their literacy, able to comprehend complex academic texts and write maturely, cohesively and accurately. We also want to ensure that students’ vocabulary, oracy, language comprehension and word reading skills are of a standard that allows them to fully access the national curriculum.

Through our reading strategy there is sustained and rigorous intervention for struggling and reluctant readers, alongside the development of pupils’ social and cultural capital. Exposure to the best that has been thought, written and spoken will bring mastery of the world around them. At Trinity High School we have a multi-faceted approach to reading.

Our strategy has three strands:

  1. Teaching the mechanics of reading
  2. Reading for Pleasure
  3. Reading for Knowledge

Our Reading Strategy is a key element of our School Development Plan in 2022-2023.

This page will be developed as the new Reading Strategy is implemented.
