Reading at Ludlow Primary School
Ludlow Primary School understands the importance of reading in the process of developing pupils into independent learners. Reading is central to our ability to understand, interpret and communicate with one another: pupils who read on a regular basis, in school and at home, have a higher chance of fulfilling their potential.
Our school’s Curriculum Drivers are designed to ensure that pupils at Ludlow Primary School have the opportunity to understand and appreciate the world around them so they can develop into responsible, knowledgeable and caring international citizens of the 21st century. Our reading curriculum is designed to support these drivers and our school’s core values.
It is essential that, by the end of their primary education, all pupils are able to read fluently, and with confidence. We aim to instil a passion for reading in pupils, which they will carry on into subsequent education and their later life.
Please see our 'Encouraging Reading' page under the Parents section for more information on how you can support your child with their reading, at home.
Meet our Reading Champions
A Reading Champion is easy to recognise - they have a passion for reading. Be it books, magazines or graphic novels, they have an ability to inspire other people to discover the pleasures of reading.
Our Reading Champions are on hand to help children in the library and support the adults in school on their mission to get more children discovering a love of reading.
