We endeavour to foster a deep and meaningful love of reading within the children at Ormiston Bridge Academy, and it is for this reason that it is central to our curriculum.
“Some pupils find it hard to read fluently. Leaders know it is essential that this is addressed. They provide pupils with a highly focused phonics programme to develop their confidence and accuracy. Some pupils have also lost interest in reading for pleasure. Staff encourage pupils to read regularly. They help pupils find texts they that they might enjoy, including newspapers and non-fiction texts. Pupils like talking about what they are reading during tutor times.”Ofsted September 2021
