Oxford Levelled books use an expertly researched and well-established system for fine-levelling which is correlated to other levelling systems and positioned to match new, higher standards and age-related expectations. We're here to help you find books that hook interest and engagement, fire imaginations and broaden world views, and to match children to books that will progressively develop their skills at every step of their reading journey.

What are Oxford Levels?

  • Oxford's way of determining text level - our own levelling criteria
  • Correlated to Book Bands very closely in Rec/P1 and KS2/P2-3 (Can also be mapped to RR levels)
  • Finer levelling than Book Bands at KS2/P4-7
  • Positioned to match new higher standards and age-related expectations
