At our school we aim to enable all pupils to read a range of texts fluently and with understanding and to have confidence in themselves as readers. We aim for all of our children to find pleasure in reading for information, interest, entertainment and purpose. Above all, we hope to install an awareness that reading is necessary for their personal lives, for learning throughout the curriculum and for working and living in our society.

To successfully achieve this for all pupils, the school maintains an environment that rich in reading opportunities, with a wealth of different texts for children to enjoy and from which they can develop their reading skills. Reading is taught across the curriculum, in English lessons, as part of the letters and sounds daily lessons and individual reading.
