An evidence-based solution

Guided by the most prominent reading research of the last 30 years, Reading Plus is an adaptive, online reading development programme which aims to improve students’ silent reading fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.

Reading Plus:

  • Compliments your school’s reading curriculum as a whole class reading development programme.
  • Continuously and dynamically monitors student performance using in-built assessments.
  • Adjusts each student’s reading content level to match their individual progress.
  • Ensures students progress at their just-right levels and are matched with age-appropriate, high-quality texts.
  • Provides a vast library of over 1,300 engaging informational, fiction, and non-fiction texts available for students to self-select.
  • Serves the needs of a wide range of students – children eligible for Pupil Premium, EAL, and SEN students benefit significantly from the programme’s personalised scaffolding, adaptive technology, and varied, informative, and cultural texts.

Measured results in Key Stage 2

Reading Plus is proven to improve the educational attainment of its users. In an efficacy study with Derby Research School and Spencer Academy Trust, average results showed:

  • Students who used Reading Plus as a reading development tool made more significant progress in their reading ability than non-users.
  • Pupil-premium-eligible children using Reading Plus made 97% more progress than pupil-premium-eligible children in the control schools.
  • Boys who used Reading Plus for reading development made 45% more progress than boys in the control schools.

Measured results in Key Stages 3/4

Reading Plus accelerates progress in line with the curriculum, as:

  • The wide range of complex and engaging texts ensures students are frequently made aware of connectedness within the curriculum and the relevance of reading across subject areas.
  • Students are exposed to unfamiliar texts from topics outside their cultural context, with more challenging vocabulary.
  • The programme also includes visual-perceptual skill-building and vocabulary development components encouraging students to build knowledge and mastery of general academic vocabulary.
  • By improving reading levels, the programme enables students to access the wider curriculum.
  • Disadvantaged, EAL, and SEN students benefit significantly from the ambitious, knowledgeable, and cultural texts.

How does Reading Plus benefit a multi-academy trust?

Reading Plus achieves this through:

  • Adaptive technology.
  • High-quality and age-appropriate texts.
  • Giving students the autonomy to control their reading journey.
