Reading is the key...               that unlocks learning!


We use Read, Write Inc to start off our early readers and introduce phonics.


Reading Scheme:

Once children start on our Reading Pathway, we have a wide range of books which are banded according to reading ability.

Schemes included in book banding include: Project X, Oxford Reading Tree, Dandelion and Ginn. 

Our extensive library includes fiction and non-fiction, poetry and picture book sections.

GEMS Reader: Lifetime Achiever!

We aim to show our pupils the value we give to reading, so we aim to utterly drench the pupils in reading:  to spark a love of literature, that will in turn improve reading AND writing standards and to cultivate a ‘reading for pleasure’ culture throughout our school.


Please take up our challenge to 'Strive for 5' that is, read with your children at least 5 times each week: it could be a comic, magazine, newspaper, non-fiction book, novel, school reading book, library book, recipe… the list is endless!


You won't believe the difference it will make to their learning!


‘Children who read for pleasure are likely to do significantly better at school than their peers, making greater progress in mathematics, development of vocabulary and spelling.’
