“We want every child to be an independent fluent reader by the time they leave Year 2. That way every child can access our broad, vibrant and balanced curriculum so they can achieve well in all areas by the end of Year 6.”

At William Leech Primary School, it’s our aim to instil a love of reading in all of our children from an early age. There are a number of different ways we do this:

  • Early reading skills are prioritised through a language rich environment
  • Class reading initiatives
  • Regular visits to campus libraries
  • Reading challenges
  • Developing a love of story through daily storytime in all classrooms
  • Author visits to school
  • Reading areas in each classroom
  • Access to a range of different and varied reading materials
