At Cronton, reading is a priority and encouraging and ensuring a love of reading is at the core of everything. All pupils deserve a rich curriculum which encourages extensive reading of whole books and other types of text and poetry. Reading is a core part of every pupil’s educational entitlement, whatever their background or attainment, because extensive reading and exposure to a broad range of texts contribute widely to each pupil’s educational achievement. Our intent is for all pupils to be confident, competent readers, appropriate to age related expectations, and be able to access a range of reading strategies. All pupils will have the opportunity to develop their spoken and written vocabulary, across the curriculum through exposure to quality texts.
