At Northwood Park we believe in encouraging pupils to foster a love of reading for pleasure. Pupils who read on a regular basis in school - and at home - have a higher chance of fulfilling their academic potential.
We aim for reading to permeate all areas of the curriculum. Independent reading, and reading as a class, are integrated into the existing curriculum, with aspects of this policy used in everyday teaching. A wide variety of texts are available in order to provide pupils with a range of reading options.
We aim to instil in pupils a passion for reading, which they will carry on into subsequent phases of education, and into later life.
