What is Bedrock Vocabulary?

There is a direct link between a pupil’s vocabulary size and their academic achievement. Narrow vocabularies affect pupils’ grades. Helping students to improve and widen their academic vocabularies is essential if standards and outcomes are to improve.

Bedrock Vocabulary is an online programme which teaches vocabulary explicitly, whilst encouraging reading. We teach students the academic vocabulary they need to succeed in school.
