Learning to Love Reading

Schools often advise parents that one of the best ways that they can support their child(ren)'s learning is to read with them, yet we are aware that sometimes very little further guidance is given about how to do this. The school has therefore produced a guidance document for parents entitle Learning to Love Reading. The document provides some background information on the valuable role reading can play in a young person's development alongside top tips for supporting your child(ren) and even a list of recommended books and authors.


The document was distributed in booklet form to all parents who attended a parent-teacher consultation appointment in October 2018. It can also be downloaded via the link below.
