Reading is at the heart of Westover Primary School. We love reading and we strive to ensure that every child leaves us not only with the ability to read easily, fluently and with good understanding, but with a real passion for books. We believe that learning to read is one of the most important skills that your child will learn whilst at school. Everything else depends on it, so we put as much energy as we possibly can into making sure that every single child learns to read and then applies this to writing through meaningful everyday activities. We aim to ensure that all children have the chance to develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information, whilst appreciating our rich and varied literary heritage.
