Use our pupil questionnaire and template for the analysis of results to find out how your pupils feel about reading, so you can identify strengths and areas for improvement in your reading provision. See examples of questionnaires from other schools.

Download our questionnaire

Use it as a starting point and adapt it to suit your school's context. 

KeyDoc: primary questionnaire - attitudes to reading

The questionnaire should be completed during lesson time, so the class teacher can read the questions out loud, and help any pupils who need support. 

Younger pupils may need an adult to scribe for them. Pupils with special educational needs (SEN) and/or English as an additional language (EAL) may also need additional support.

Download our results analysis form

Use our form to analyse the results. It's based on our questionnaire, but can be easily adapted if you're using your own version. 

KeyDoc: primary questionnaire analysis - attitudes to reading

If this analysis is more in-depth than needed, use a simple tally system to pinpoint areas of strength and areas for improvement, or use the questionnaire more informally as a basis for discussion about your provision.
