Principle 1: Use appropriate subject knowledge

Use appropriate subject knowledge e.g. the Simple View of Reading (SVOR) 

An effective teacher of reading:


  • Plans clear learning objectives linked to word recognition or language comprehension
  • Teaches word recognition using a systematic approach to teaching phonics through an appropriate programme e.g. Letters and Sounds
  • Explains the effective features of the phonics programme used
  • Teaches language comprehension through the explicit teaching of comprehension strategies, talks about reading, provides children with opportunities to talk about reading
  • Provides opportunities to apply word recognition or language comprehension strategies


Models the use of word recognition and language comprehension processes


Uses knowledge of the children and knowledge of the SVOR to plan for differentiation
