Reading at All Saints

All Saints recognises the importance of reading for pleasure as well as further developing vitally important literacy skills. To allow this to happen, all pupils should carry a reading book with them in school, so that they can take the opportunity to immerse themselves in a story that interests them.

It is interesting to note that research from The Reading Agency suggests that 10 to 16 year olds who read for pleasure do better at school. We spoke to a few of our students about why they enjoy reading.
