We are PROUD readers

Join us on our reading journey and take a look at the fantastic reading opportunities we have in school. From ‘Starbooks’ to our magical ‘reading garden’ and our incredible school library, we are proud to host many reading enrichment opportunities for our children. Reading remains at the heart of all that we do and we aim to foster a love and passion that stays with our children throughout their lifelong learning. We are committed to exposing our children to a rich diet of texts that they will remember fondly through daily reading lessons, ‘drop everything and read’ time and end of day class books.

Below, you will also find our reading intent statement and our progression document, which details the reading objectives for each year group.
