We LOVE Reading!


Instilling a love of reading early gives a child a head start on expanding their vocabulary and building independence and self-confidence. It helps children learn to make sense not only of the world around them but also people, building social-emotional skills and of course, imagination.


Reading is necessary for learning, so instilling a love of reading from an early age is the key that unlocks the door to lifelong learning. Reading aloud presents books as sources of pleasant, entertaining, and exciting formative experiences for children to remember. Children who value books are more motivated to read on their own and will likely continue to hold that value for the rest of their lives.

In January 2022, we were delighted to receive a letter from Edwina Grant (OBE), acknowledging our provision for reading at Sacred Heart:


It is pleasing to see that the school promotes a love of reading right through from nursery to Year 6, that pupils are able to read words with increasing confidence and fluency, and talked excitedly about the different authors and books that they read. Edwina Grant (OBE)
