South Yorkshire Reading Guarantee

Reading for pleasure is a more important indicator of future success than any socio-economic factors.
OECD, 2002

What is the guarantee?

Every child will learn to read.
Every child will choose to read frequently for pleasure.

The guarantee has been produced in collaboration by partners across Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster. It is designed to offer schools the tools to reflect on and review practice, which then results in actions and plans to develop reading for pleasure, and early reading and phonics. It is a great resource which enables schools to take ownership of their own reading journey by engaging with our high quality tools and resources.
