At King's Academy College Park, our team work together to ensure that we all have a clear understanding of our reading journey, which aims to support all our children to become fluent readers who can use their different skills in reading to interact with a variety of texts and enable them to have full access to the curriculum. At KACP, we understand that literacy is fundamental to all areas of learning and that being literate increases an individual's opportunities throughout each stage of their education and future career.
We think carefully about how to promote the love of reading in our school, as we know that reading for pleasure boosts comprehension and engagement for our children.
This link between reading for pleasure and increased reading comprehension has been observed through studies and research. According to Ofsted's research report, 'research indicates a positive correlation between pupils' engagement with reading and their attainment in reading.
