Choosing a new reading scheme is a big investment for any primary school, both financially and the importance of getting a scheme that supports all pupils to learn to read quickly. All educational publishers will have carefully written schemes, drawing on research and the expertise of literacy consultants. However, you will want to ensure that you choose the right reading scheme for your school community considering factors such as: what existing resources you have; what system you are using for monitoring progression; and at what stage children are moving on to free reading (KS1 or KS2).
Pandora Books offer a wide range of recommended reading schemes for primary school classrooms including phonically decodable books that form part of a systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP). All our books are supplied with free protective jackets, so they last much longer.
