Research abounds on the devastating long-term impact of a poor vocabulary – a child’s vocabulary at the age of 4 is a reliable predictor of their academic attainment at 18.
The 2018 Oxford Language Report revealed 49% of Year 1 pupils have such a limited vocabulary that it affects their learning, while in a recent OUP survey, 86% of primary school teachers said children with limited vocabularies would struggle to read national test papers and so receive lower results than their peers.
Strong literacy skills have a proven positive impact – not just on academic success across the curriculum, but on social confidence and career prospects beyond school.
Vocabulary is a fundamental part of literacy, yet so often teaching it is left to chance. In 2015, this promoted our founders – English teachers then working in London – to draw on their classroom experience to design a targeted vocabulary app.
Bedrock Vocabulary is a comprehensive online vocabulary curriculum with a statistically proven impact on its hundreds of thousands of users across the world.
Our curriculum not only increases individual student attainment, but also provides powerful tools to track student progress across groups, helping to improve language across all groups of learners.
We can help turn your school into a word-rich environment that sows the seeds for success in Year 6 SATs and far beyond.

“The children are applying the new vocabulary they have learnt to their writing.”
