A Department for Education (DfE) RCT study found ReadingWise increased reading ages by
9.5 months in 1 term and ReadingWise pupils improved twice as fast compared to the control group.
From the study:
“Teachers noticed a huge difference in the abilities of the children to engage in whole class work, and saw the improvement in the children as signiﬁcant.”
Using a broad range of innovative techniques, we provide schools with a ground-breaking literacy intervention programme with amazing results. Using algorithms, online sessions adapt to each learner’s ability, delivering appropriate content to optimise learning and progression through the programme. A government-funded study found that ReadingWise improves a pupil’s reading age 78% faster than usual classes.
Use ReadingWise from Reception through to Year 6 Reading SATS to support whole class reading skills and provide additional development for strugglers including EAL and SEN.
Use ReadingWise in KS3 and KS4 to deliver rapid reading improvement targeting the need. Sessions can take place with the learning support team, in the library or in the classroom. The live progress tracking reports are – ideal for Pupil Premium and Ofsted reporting.
