I am writing to inform you of a new initiative the Academy is introducing next week to encourage all our students to read independently, both at home and in school.
Students will be given the opportunity to read in form time, twice per week, supported by their Form Tutor.
We would ask you to support us by providing and checking that your son/daughter has reading material available for a Monday and Tuesday morning. This could be in the form of an appropriate book, newspaper or magazine.
We would also like you to further support us by encouraging your son/daughter to read at home, on a regular basis, at least three evenings per week. Each child will be issued with a reading log to record this.
I am sure you will agree that encouraging reading in children is extremely important and will help their progress across all subjects in the curriculum.
May I take this opportunity to thank you for your support in this initiative.
Mrs J C Hornby
