The school’s headteacher Mrs Knapp said that reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of future success and it has a high focus in our school.

Mrs Handley, reading champion, said: “The children already enjoy super library facilities with over 12,000 books for them to choose from.

“We have created a social and relaxed reading environment and we celebrate all types of reading and encourage the children to read their way.

“Every child knows that we don’t just celebrate reading on World Book Day because reading makes you clever and it can enrich lives.”
