Putting Children First

Reading and Phonics

At BPA we value the importance of reading. We recognised how reading is the gateway to life.

As a child grows up, being able to read well not only enables them to discover new facts and to learn at school, but opens them up to new ideas, stories and opportunities.

The teaching and learning of Reading starts from their very first steps into school, with a progressive child centred curriculum which is based around the use of high quality texts.

Reading for pleasure is promoted across the curriculum and through our many whole school events and experiences.
