Read to Achieve!

We would like to announce the launch of our school as a ’Reading School’.

Our aim is to provide our children with the very best possible reading resources to help them learn to read quickly using phonics. We have plans to transform the current entrance hall into an exciting Reading Zone that the children will enjoy.

We will also be changing the way your child’s home reading is organized so that they will be bringing home a phonically decodable book, as well as another book matched to their reading ability, each week.

We are currently going through all our existing stock of books and will then look to buy in exciting new reading resources.

For children who are already confident readers, we will be transforming our School Library. Older readers will be having a ‘school reading book’ which will be selected from a variety of different genre and set at an appropriate level of challenge. This will mean the end of the concept of a ‘free reader’ but children will still be encouraged to read for pleasure, from a wide range of different sources.

School Closure

If for any reason the school has to close, information will be posted on the Staffordshire School Closure List, which can be accessed at:
