    To continue to raise the achievements of the Children in our school we are developing reading throughout the school.

    Every classroom has a new reading area which will be used for guided and group reading every day.

    We have invested in new books including class sets so everyone can have their own copy.

    Every day the children will be given the opportunity to participate in S.Q.U.I.R.T, Sustained, Quiet, Uninterrupted, Reading Time.

    Many studies have linked reading a range of quality books with improving general knowledge and writing, as well as reading being a fun and relaxing activity for all.

    As part of our continuing improvement to the school environment all of our classroom have now got doors.

    This makes an amazing difference to the noise level throughout the building and helps the children in different classes to focus on the task they have been set.
