Primary School


We use a variety of strategies and teaching styles to support children in learning how to decode and develop comprehension and a love of reading:

  • Daily, high quality phonics teaching in small groups in EYFS and KS1.
  • Shared reading within daily English lessons.
  • A high status given to developing language and communication, including using the 'Talk for Writing' model across the school.
  • Guided reading sessions outside of the daily English lesson, including whole class teaching of reading sessions.
  • Class novels, which the teacher reads aloud to their class on a regular basis.  The texts are carefully chosen to engage and widen our children's access to texts and authors.
  • Our whole school home reading scheme, which encourages children to read regulary at home with parents and guardians - children are rewarded for this through our reading awards in celebration assembly.
  • Access to high quality reading materials in the school library (each class has a timetabled slot) and exciting 'library@lunch' activities.
  • We use high quality intervention programmes, including 'speechlink', 'IDL' and 'catch-up phonics' for children who require additional support with an aspect of reading or communication.

Our Library and Library@Lunch


Our school library is used regularly by all children, so that they can access a wider range of reading materials and develop a love of reading based on their own reading interests. All children are encouraged to take books home to enjoy. 

Ably assisted by a group of UKS2 librarians, the library is run by our librarian Miss Birtle.  She is also responsible for running exciting, themed 'Library@Lunch' activities to promote engagement in reading - these form a part of our reading themed events across the school!
