At Long Sutton County Primary School we truly value reading and its teaching. It is our belief that it is our duty to ensure that our pupils are given every opportunity to develop a love of reading for pleasure.

We have spent more than £30,000 over the last seven years on our bookstock and are always seeking to improve this.

Guided Reading

The school uses a range of books and schemes for Guided Reading, which is our main method of teaching reading, including Connectors and Read, Respond and Engage. These are made up of a series of highly engaging and interesting books which we now fire up our children's imaginations and love of reading.

Reading at Home

Reading at home remains a central part of our approach to the teaching of reading. We have a wide reading stock and share this with the children so that they can take books home. We also encourage children to use the local library and to borrow books from there. This is promoted by a weekly visit from groups of children over the year and working with the manager of Long Sutton Library who comes into school to work with children.
