Reading and Writing Overviews

The teaching and acquisition of reading skills is prioritised at St Mary’s to allow pupils to access the full curriculum and prepare them for the next stage in their life. We aim to develop all children as readers who share a passion for books and reading. Reading is a lifetime learning skill which provides children with enjoyment and excitement and an opportunity to gain information about the world around them.
