Passport title



Sharing Stories and Rhymes Passport  (Very light blue)

Designed for parents to use with children aged 0-5 years. A memento of special times sharing books together. Ideal for pre-schools, nurseries. Could be completed in 2-3 weeks if you are reading a book together every day and could be repeated to capture the child’s developing interest in reading. Contains ideas for parents on how to share stories and rhymes and make reading fun. Supplied with Rooted in Reading logo stickers for celebrating each new entry.


Reading Together Passport  (Light blue)

Very similar to Sharing Stories and Rhymes but with the expectation that the child will do more of the writing. The emphasis is very much on sharing books rather than on recording the child’s decoding skills. Supplied with Rooted in Reading logo stickers for celebrating each new entry.


KS1 Passport (Blue)

The basic passport for children in the early stages of independent reading. They can record their response to 12 books, 1 per page, and then have the excitement of getting the page stamped by their teacher or librarian (stamps need purchasing in addition). Pages can be completed in any order – the page headings gently guide the reader towards new text types.


KS2 or KS3 Passport (Green)

Very much like the KS1 Passport but with 2 books per page (24 in all) so ideal for readers who are getting through books quite quickly and have reasonably well controlled handwriting.


KS2/3 Transition Passport (Yellow)

For children in Year 6 (aged 11) who are moving up from primary to secondary school. With pages to be completed about reading in primary, over the summer vacation and on the initial reading experiences in secondary school, this passport gathers vital evidence to help schools improve the transition experience for their pupils, improving understanding of prior reading experience.


Cultural Enrichment Passport

Inspired by the Henley on Cultural Education but shown in the image, this passport aims to encourage pupils to get involved in cultural activities, both on a practical basis and as part of the audience. It helps pupils develop their ability to form opinions and also helps schools to track cultural enrichment, enabling them to put in place activities where gaps are identified.


Passport Plus (Dark red)

This passport has more sophisticated prompts than the green and blue passports and is thus best suited to readers from Year 8 upwards. It has a less genre-based approach but the entries can still be completed in any order. A popular high seller.


Reader’s Passport  (Black)

Aimed at both individual readers and those who belong to reading groups, this versatile passport can be used by readers of any age. It contains a series of prompts for discussion that groups can pick from before they start their reading, providing their subsequent discussions with a clear focus.


Challenge Passport (Orange)

This passport is now A6, not A5 as shown in the image. It is designed for reluctant readers of any age and aims to make the reasons for reading more explicit. Dyslexia-friendly, with tinted pages, writing guide lines and no watermark.


Personal Reading Diary (Teal)

These passports can be used to collect evidence of pupils’ private reading. There are 18 tasks, based around reading assessment focuses. If completed fortnightly, this would provide a reading review homework task every other week for a whole school year. Will work best with Y8 or 9 pupils.


Rooted in Reading Award (Purple)

These passports feature a demanding set of tasks which will encourage wider reading throughout KS4 and 5. Ideal for maintaining and developing wide-ranging intellectual interests against a background of a narrowing curriculum.


Critical Literacy (Grey)

Written for 6th formers or under-graduates studying English who want to increase the sophistication of their reading approaches, this passport sets out to make students question the underlying assumptions behind their reading.


Community Passport (Brown)

Pop one in your foyer, library or staff room and encourage everyone in your school community to contribute short entries about the books they have read. Based on the idea that “I read because we read”.


Teacher’s Reading Passport

Not shown in the image. Teachers who are active readers are much more likely to be able to encourage pupils to read. This passport, based on the concept of the Commonplace book, could be shared with pupils. It gives teachers somewhere to store ideas to use on lessons. Should stimulate informed discussion about reading amongst your teachers.

P15 My Reading World Passport

By encouraging our pupils and students to read fiction and non-fiction texts and to think carefully about the connections between them, this passport aims to increase understanding of other people. If our young people are to be true citizens of the world, they will need to have insight into the lives of others so that they understand why they feel and behave as they do. Reading is a brilliant way to develop this understanding and this passport structures this reading in a simple but powerful way.
