We place a great emphasis on ensuring all pupils learn to read as quickly as possible. In the EYFS we introduce children to the Read, Write, Inc phonics programme. This is taught across the school on a daily basis. Children move away from the programme only when they are fluent readers.
Below is a helpful video explaining Read, Write, Inc.
We have invested in our school library and all classes spend time choosing and enjoying books.
We have also launched a reading challenge for all pupils. Any pupil who reads at home at least 4 times a week receives a sticker on their reading chart. This is linked to rewards chosen from the School Council shop.
