CLPE – Reading and Writing Scales

The Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) in England have worked with partners to create reading and writing scales for ‘beginning – mature independent’ readers and writers. The scales could be used alongside Steps to Success – The Highland Literacy Progression to support planning for progression.


The scales describe the reading and writing behaviours that children may display at each stage from ‘beginning – mature independent’ and include next steps for each stage on the scale.



The reading and writing scales are tools which could support you in taking a developmental approach to reading and writing across the Broad General Education, building on from foundational reading and writing skills through Emerging Literacy.
