ReadingWise goes the extra mile to personalise the product to meet our needs, and they’ve proven excellent value for money. They provide intensive training and follow-up to ensure all schools maximise the potential of the programmes. Within the last 12 months, the number of fluent readers has increased significantly and this includes disadvantaged pupils and those with special educational needs.”

Why invest in ReadingWise as a literacy intervention solution? 

  • Massive improvements in a short timescale. 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.
  • Evidence-based interventions for every age group (whether reading age or chronological age).
  • Literacy interventions that are easy to deliver, supervised or unsupervised depending on the pupil's age and reading challenges. 
  • Literacy reading programmes are just as effective for pupils who are new to the English language (EAL) and those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), and from disadvantaged backgrounds where reading isn’t encouraged at home. 
  • Pricing and packages are based on your school’s needs. We will help you justify the spending under the Pupil Premium Budget.
  • Comprehensive training and support, tailored to the needs of your school, teachers, TAs, and other software you need to integrate with it to monitor and track reading progress, attainment, and fluency. 

“Seeing the difference ReadingWise makes from when the pupils first start out to where they are now is great. The best part is seeing their reading age improve from below their actual age up to and often exceeding their actual age.”

Amanda Scott, PSA, Alford Primary School, Aberdeenshire

10 reasons why every school needs a literacy intervention programme?

Here are ten reasons why every school needs a literacy intervention programme:

  1. Enhancing literacy skills, educational outcomes, and reading fluency and attainment is an essential life skill and curriculum target. 
  2. Schools often have diverse student populations with varying literacy needs. A ReadingWise literacy intervention programme can be tailored to address these specific requirements.
  3. Utilising data and assessment results, the programme can identify students who require additional support and provide targeted interventions.
  4. Implementing a standardised literacy programme can ensure consistency in teaching practices and help share best practices across every year group, and in an MAT, within every member school. 
  5. Schools can collectively invest in a more robust and cost-effective literacy programme.
  6. A literacy intervention programme can help assess progress and hold schools accountable for the outcomes of literacy initiatives.
  7. Pupils who leave school with higher English grades and greater levels of reading fluency earn more. Adults with lower levels of literacy earn 7.1% less than those with a better understanding of reading. 
  8. Literacy interventions change lives. In schools (primary and secondary), 20% of children fail to achieve adequate literacy levels before leaving school. This equates to “1 in 6 (16.4%) adults in England are estimated to have very low literacy” (OECD, 2016). 
  9. Consequences of this range anywhere from unemployment to falling into criminal activity. According to the World Literacy Foundation, a 2018 study found that “illiteracy is estimated to cost the UK economy approximately £80 billion [per year].”
  10. Tragically, there’s a clear correlation between illiteracy, the ability to find work, and crime. A Ministry of Justice (MoJ) report in 2022 found that “57% of adults in prison in the UK have a reading level below that of an average 11-year-old.” 

It’s easy to see how many of life’s rich possibilities are denied to those 20% who struggle to read. We know that without extra support and timely intervention, educational and vocational outcomes for that 20% can be poor.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. We know that, given the right tools, everyone can learn to read. We know that because we have seen it for ourselves.
