'During the trial period it quickly became apparent that pupils of all abilities were gaining an enormous amount from the structured and engaging approach to reading instruction.'

We originally identified Lexia Core5 as a tool to put more structure around our targeted interventions for a small number of pupils. However, during the trial period it quickly became apparent that pupils of all abilities were gaining an enormous amount from the structured and engaging approach to reading instruction. The ease with which the programme could be accessed by pupils at home meant it was a valuable part of our remote learning provision, and since the full re-opening of the school and the roll-out of the programme to all of KS2, we have seen terrific engagement and early signs of progress from pupils. I am excited for our staff to become more familiar with the programme, as I am confident the data and insights derived from it will enable targeted, timely and impactful interventions, ultimately leading to more confident and capable readers in all of our classrooms!
