We are convinced that reading has an extremely important role to play in a child’s educational development. Consequently, we run a Home Reading scheme where parents are asked to read regularly with their children. During the first years, Welsh-language books are used, followed by both languages from then on. Of course, it is a voluntary scheme run for your child’s benefit, and you are not under any obligation to follow it. A member of staff will monitor the children’s Home Reading books in the Foundation Phase on a regular basis, and will exchange these as necessary. In KS2, the pupils themselves are expected to bring their home reading books to be exchanged and to start choosing suitable books. In addition to this, in order to promote an interest in reading we will distribute books catalogues from time to time. You are under no obligation to buy.
