Create engaged readers whose knowledge of carefully chosen texts enriches their understanding and appreciation of the world they live in. Develop a consistent approach to teaching reading across the school, ensuring that our children continue to secure excellent levels of attainment. Provide a range of opportunities to read for pleasure and engage in discussion about books.
