My child's reading level

Lots of our parents often ask how reading schemes work, and how they can tell if their child is progressing at the right rate? In the UK, book bands are used across different reading schemes to indicate the reading level of each book. At Broad Oak we use book bands across KS1 to level our books and in KS2 the readabilty of a book is decided upon by calculating the books Lexile Level. 

The two images below show how we track reading progress across school.
