Comprehension involves critical thinking and applying knowledge from the text for deeper understanding
The greatest success for us from Reading Plus has been the increased motivation from our otherwise reluctant readers; they’re now desperate to earn Combos and Level Up. The program alone is excellent, but the support from the team at Reading Solutions UK has been incredible and has had a positive impact on reading progress for our pupils.
Ricky Lee, Year 6 Teacher and Inclusion Lead
Linthorpe Community Primary School
Since taking on Reading Plus, it has been clear that the children’s fluency, reading speed, word knowledge and comprehension has significantly improved. This has most certainly aided us in achieving record SATS data in reading.

Bruche Primary School
Our children have made good progress and this has resulted in 82% of children meeting the Expected Standard in Reading and 22% of children achieving Greater Depth!
Tracy Johnson, Deputy Headteacher
Forest View Primary School
Reading Plus has transformed our culture of reading at our school. It provides an exciting, engaging platform for children to improve, but ultimately enjoy. Before we began using this program, it was an uphill task to get our children to read, but now, thanks to Reading Plus, they love reading!
Michael Suthers, English Lead
Pallister Park Primary School
What a positive impact Reading Plus has had on our results! Out of our lower-ability Year 6 cohort, 66% achieved the Expected Standard, with 22% achieving Greater Depth. We are thrilled with this as all have made great progress and many have achieved ‘unimaginable targets’!
