Oxford Reading Levels

Help every child to progress with their reading using Oxford Reading Levels to guide their reading journey

Oxford Reading Levels brochure

Oxford Reading Levelled books use an expertly researched and well-established system for fine-levelling which is correlated to other reading 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 reading skills at every step of their reading journey.

What are Oxford Reading Levels?

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