In school, we follow the Nelson Comprehension scheme to ensure consistency in teaching and learning for all our children.


Nelson Comprehension provides step-by-step teaching of key comprehension skills for Years 1–6. It is fully matched to the latest UK curricula and assessments.

Uses a clear layout with colour-coded questions covering literal comprehensionvocabulary, and higher-order skills such as inference and deduction

Provides differentiated worksheets that offer both support for pupils and extra challenge and stretch for high-achievers

Includes practice reading tests for Years 2, 4 and 6 to help monitor progress and prepare children for national tests.
