Support for struggling readers
The art of reading does not come naturally, and not all pupils have mastered it before arriving at Eden School. We take a deliberate and intentional approach to reading development. Pupils who are below chronological age in their reading have access to bespoke reading interventions delivered by learning support assistants.
- Reading fluency
- Reading comprehension
- Inference / deduction
