Children need to have quality time to read books they enjoy, and are engaged with, in school and at home.

  • Ensure quality time is set aside for reading in school, and that children have a book they enjoy reading during this time
  • Nurture reading outside of school by allowing children to take books they enjoy home and encouraging reading time at home
  • Create extra opportunities to read in school, for example in breakfast or after school clubs, reading clubs, etc.
  • Ensure children have opportunities to swap a book if they are not enjoying it.
