Evidence of Impact

Analysis of data has shown that Power of Reading schools:

  • Make significant progress in reading and writing, particularly with those pupils who had previously been reluctant to engage with literacy

  • Are effective in narrowing the achievement gap between boys and girls

  • Find that their children choose to read more often, at greater length and are more confident in talking about books

What Teachers Say

“Children’s writing in classes using PoR texts has improved. All children were very positive and engaged with the texts; inspired to write and inspired to read! High quality texts have meant writing outcomes are of a much better standard."

Headteacher, Leverington Primary Academy

Cambridgeshire PoR training 2018-19

“PoR reinforces the importance of choosing the right texts to engage, captivate and inspire the children in your class. It also gave me back the confidence to teach in the way I know is best for my pupils.”

Teacher,

Cambridgeshire PoR training 2018-19

“Children are being exposed to texts maybe they wouldn’t have been before. The texts cover different cultures and themes which has opened the children’s eyes to the world around them. There are engaging texts for boys.”
