“Reading for pleasure is the single biggest factor in success later in life, outside of an education. Study after study has shown that those children who read for pleasure are the ones who are most likely to fulfil their ambitions. If your child reads, they will succeed – it’s that simple.”

At the start of January 2018, to support our teaching of reading,  we launched a Read Write Inc Phonics across Reception, KS1 and Years 3 & 4. This phonics programme is hugely successful in schools across the UK in teaching systematic phonics and raising the standard of reading and spelling (See document, 'Reading by Six')

We will be running parent workshops throughout the year, as well providing opportunities for parents to see Read, Write, Inc in action in our 'Parents in Class' sessions. Further details about these opportunities can be found in the school diary.
