Intent

Reading at The Avenue
 
  • We believe that reading is the key to success in the future. We want our pupils to have the skills to access reading in all areas of the curriculum, and to take away a love of reading when they leave us. We want them to be readers for life! 
  • To do this, we aim to give pupils the skills (below) to access and explore texts. Our school and classrooms are places where we encourage a rich and varied access to language to support reading and writing skills. We aim to create a culture in our school which encourages a love of reading to engage and inspire pupils to want to succeed. 
  • What does a ‘reader for life’ look like?
