Library and reading books
Library books will be given to your child on Monday, Wednesday and Friday every week. These books are sent home for you to read to your child and develop a love of reading together. Your child will also be given a reading book every Friday which they can read to you using their phonic knowledge and understanding, this will start shortly after they have learnt their first few sounds.
* We advise that all children have a book bag for school for home reading books. *

Have you seen our 'GOOD' Ofsted report?
These are some of the fantastic comments that Ofsted have said about our school and foundation stage...
"Children get off to a good, and sometimes outstanding, start in the creative and stimulating Early Years Foundation Stage"
"Pupils achieve well in reading, writing, and mathematics, making good, and sometimes excellent, progress from their starting points"
"Pupils are proud of their school, enjoy learning, behave well and feel safe"
"Pupils generally do well in reading because they receive good-quality teaching of phonics in the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1"
"Children in Nursery and Reception classes learn and play together very well, which gives them a good start to their school life"
"Pupils are friendly, courteous and well-mannered. They move around the school quietly and sensibly. They get on well with one another and with all the adults in an environment of mutual respect"
"Pupils are proud of their new school and speak enthusiastically about the caring staff and the help they receive. They are also keen and eager to learn. This is reflected in their improving attendance, which is close to the national average, and their good behaviour in lessons and while at play"
