This classroom programme helps to move all children on in their reading. It is delivered initially to Year 1, then introduced into Reception and for the lowest attaining children in Year 2 for maximum impact across the school. It helps children make accelerated progress by working in a coherent and systematic way. Children enjoy daily independent reading in small groups matched to their independent reading level, led by a trained adult.
An annual subscription supports schools in their ongoing delivery of Daily Supported Reading. The subscription includes access to a termly forum and updated resources.
"14 schools who were part of an independent two year evaluation of DSR from 2013–2015, and who implemented the programme as designed, achieved their highest outcomes ever for children achieving level 2b plus. The average increase in reading outcomes across this cohort was 11.3%."
