In the government's most recent reading framework (2022), the national curriculum states that 'pupils should be taught to: … read aloud accurately books that are consistent with their developing phonic knowledge and that do not require them to use other strategies to work out words. This is why schools should invest in books that have been carefully structured in cumulative steps for children learning to read, so that they can decode every word as their knowledge of the alphabetic code increases. These books are often referred to simply as ‘decodable’ books.'
