Reading truly is the key to success. Being a confident and fluent reader can open many doors for a person, both within education and wider life. With this in mind, Springwell Park is a reading school. High quality texts are at the heart of our curriculum. We work hard to create an enthusiasm for reading and make the children excited about picking up books.


We truly cannot stress enough how important it is for your child to be reading daily at home.


Home reading 

Ideally, your child should be reading their home reading book every single night. It would be great if this formed part of your daily routine. Your home reading session with your child should include asking questions about the text to ensure your child understands what they have read. The parent/carer should sign the home reading record so that we can keep a tally of who is reading and celebrate success stories.
