What is Bedrock Vocabulary?

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

Bedrock Vocabulary is designed for students from 6 to 16 years old.

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 vocabulary is essential if outcomes are to improve.
