The 'Summer Reading Challenge' is here!

It is funded by Arts Council England and presented by The Reading Agency, to encourage children aged 4 to 11 to set themselves a reading challenge to help prevent the summer reading ‘dip’.

Every year the Summer Reading Challenge is delivered with the support of public libraries, to motivate children to keep reading to build their skills and conīŦdence.  Over 700, 000 children took part last year and it would be amazing if as many pupils as possible from our school took part this year!

Please click on the link below where you will find all the details of how to take part:
