The National Curriculum for English states that:

“Reading widely and often opens up a treasure-house of wonder and joy for curious minds.’’


Literacy is, of course, key to a successful future. Our aim is to ensure all children become highly skilled readers and also develop a love of reading so that they become life-long readers. We aim to ensure all children have a balanced reading diet comprising fiction, non-fiction, poetry and classics. 


We use several reading schemes throughout the school. Our main scheme in EYFS and Key Stage 1 is The Oxford Reading Tree, but this is supplemented by several other schemes.


In Key Stage 2 we teach reading mainly through the daily 'Big Read', where children have the opportunity to study quality children's literature in some depth.
