We believe that the written word is fundamental to the overall development of the child and enables their access to the curriculum in all its aspects, allowing children to become confident and successful in their literacy. Children will become fluent readers, and encouraging and providing opportunities for reading for pleasure will remain at the centre of our reading curriculum.
Ensure excellence in teaching and learning within a high quality learning environment, through leadership and within all aspects of school life. Celebrate our pupils’ successes in reading through vibrant curriculum and extra –curricular opportunities.
Create a positive atmosphere where everyone feels happy, safe and valued; where consistent encouragement, praise and effective feedback lead to success and development in reading and promote a love of literature in all its forms. Whether you are working on phases in phonics or a free reader we encourage you to explore more.
Allow children to explore through exciting learning environments where they encounter challenging and stimulating reading material, and by providing opportunities for reading across the whole curriculum.
