The Staffordshire Reading Skills Grid
'The Staffordshire Reading Skills Grids' is a revised, updated version of the successful 'Reading Skills Ladder' and a companion document to 'The Staffordshire Writing Skills Grids'.
This booklet has been produced to provide teachers with an effective tool to support their assessment of children's progress in reading. It can be used for both formative and summative assessment and is particularly useful as a diagnostic tool to identify children's strengths and weaknesses in reading and to inform the 'next steps' in their reading journey. The grids provide guidance relating to sub-levels at Levels 1-5. There is also detailed guidance about the assessment of reading for pupils working towards Level 1 - for Foundation Stage pupils there is a grid using Foundation Stage Profile criteria and for older children, particularly those with learning difficulties, who are working significantly below age-related expectations, there is a grid using P Levels criteria.
