Literacy

At Holy Family, it is our ambition to promote literacy in all areas of the school curriculum.  We want confident, secure pupils in all literacy skills so that they can thrive and communicate effectively as adults.  It is our intention that we raise standards of literacy, in partnership with parents, so that no student is disadvantaged by poor literacy skills.

We want to encourage students to read widely and often.  There are reading resources and activities taking place in school, we also provide reading materials and the opportunity to purchase books through the Bookclub.   

In addition, we encourage parents to access the wealth of reading resources available and have created a reading list for specifically for each key stage.

We recommend the following websites to support your child reading at home:
