Reading is one of our highest priorities at St Erme with Trispen School.  We place a great emphasis on reading - which is the key building block for future learning. By placing reading at the heart of our curriculum, we ensure children have full access to our varied and exciting curriculum. We believe that instilling a lifelong love of reading is crucial for our children’s academic achievement, mental health and their future economic success. 

"A child who reads will be an adult who thinks."

At St Erme we use Read Write Inc to support children to become readers. Once children are fluent readers they will experience the joy of discovering brilliant and thought-provoking texts and books. For inspiration, click on our 'Recommended Reads' page to find recommended books for your child's age. 

Also remember to check out the weekly recommended reads in our weekly newsletter and for further tips and ideas to encourage reading look on the 'We love reading' page.
