All students participate in a wide range of Literacy activities throughout the school week to develop and refine their reading, writing and speaking and listening skills.

Accelerated Reader:

Each student is guided to select a reading book that is suitable for their reading and chronological age. Once a student has finished their book, they complete an online quiz to measure their understanding and progress. Students are encouraged to read a variety of materials and for their own pleasure.

Here are some of the comments students have made about reading:

  • "I like to bring my own books into school. It is calming and fun."
  • "I find the reading lessons relaxing and I learn more through reading."
  • "Reading is enjoyable. It helps me to discover new content."

Halton Libraries:

All of our students are encouraged to to become a member of Halton Libraries and we work closely with library staff to provide students with a number of exciting opportunities including author visits and sponsored reads.
Education Library Service
Our school library is supplemented by Cheshire Education Library Service. This means we have access to a much wider range of reading materials for all ability levels. We have a new library building due to open in 2024.
