Responsible Readers Initiative

We all know that reading unlocks a world of imagination, acting as a gateway for further knowledge and character development, but with 1:5 children unable to read fluently by the age of 11 our reading programme has been developed.  

From September 2021, our tutors will read aloud to your child four mornings a week to ensure that every child is exposed to reading on a regular basis. Every student will follow along with a reading ruler (bookmark) and will be asked to complete a series of short surveys on SMHW to give feedback and track the progress of the programme.  

Students from each year group have worked with our staff to create a rich and diverse reading canon. (Add attachment)  

The canon has broad range of fiction and non-fiction which we believe will not only inspire and nurture a love of reading, but that it will develop compassion and respect for other cultures and introduce our students to worlds beyond their immediate environment.
