At Potten End CE Primary School, reading is at the heart of everything we do. It shines through our classrooms, our staff and our children. From Early Years right up to Year 6, children are immersed in high quality and vocabulary rich texts. Staff share a love of stories with our children, transporting them to different worlds, igniting their imaginations, exposing them to the rich knowledge of non-fiction books.
From the moment children step through our doors, we teach them to be confident, fluent readers through a rigorous phonics programme that ensures by the time a child leaves our school, they are high school ready and ready to take on the world!
Therefore, it is our promise to all of our pupils that by the age of 7, every child will be a reader. If they are not, we will do everything within our power to help children catch up, so that all children believe in the power of books and become life-long readers and learners.
