The ability to read is at the core of both the students’ academic and social, emotional and moral development in school.  Furthermore, the ability to read directly corresponds to the ability to learn and is fundamentally related to the development of writing and speaking and listening skills.

It is our aim that all students understand that independent reading is intrinsically linked to success.  Our main objectives are to:

  • Establish the attitude that reading is valuable.
  • Encourage students to vary their reading choices and access challenging texts when selecting a range of reading material.
  • Create a culture where everyone is motivated to read, both in school and at home.

In order for students to improve their reading ability it is essential that they are actively encouraged to read independently at home, as well as in school. 

You will find a range of resources on our dedicated literacy website that can be used to support students when they are making their reading choices.
