Parent Guides

Reading is incredibly important and it is vital that children not only read at school, but practise their reading skills at home too. We encourage our parents and carers to read with their children at home and complete home/school reading diaries/journals. They are encouraged to comment on their child’s decoding, fluency and inference.  


Parents are also invited into class and whole school workshops to celebrate books and read together and in Reception and KS1 teachers run sessions to build parent’s skills in supporting their children at home with their Reading and Phonics.  


One of our favourite events of the year is an annual 'Bedtime Stories' event where children and parents are invited back to school in the evening to listen to bedtime stories.  World Book Day is also celebrated annually with a whole day off timetable, undertaking a range of different activities to encourage a real love for reading! These events are highly valued and are part of our plan to foster greater home/school parental communication and a love for reading.
