Our approach to teaching reading and phonics
We encourage our families to read with their children everyday - this additional practice is essential to developing reading proficiency - and we also run a paired-reading scheme at school.
Our core aim for all pupils
Becoming a proficient reader is vital. Through reading we stimulate our imagination, maintain our wellbeing, learn new words and phrases, experience a range of emotions, develop empathy and acquire skills and knowledge. Because of the learning potential gained by a fluent reader, the effects of reading on child development are vast. Our aim is to provide our pupils with lots of opportunities throughout their school life to develop a life-long love of reading.
