QEGS is a growing town in the middle of Derbyshire. The intake is from a range of primaries, with a range of socio-economic status’. The reading age on entry is above average – with only 34 of 207 grading below 100 scaled score in Y6 reading assessments, however, there are still a number of students who start at QEGS with significant gaps in their abilities. This strategy (see below) aims to close the gaps for any students, and develop a confidence in, and love of reading.

Reading and Literacy Development Strategy

With a mixed prior attaining intake from a wide variety of feeder schools and increasing numbers of EAL students, our intention is to close the reading gap inherited at the entry to KS3, prepare all students for the reading demands of all subjects at KS4 and life beyond.
