School Target 2019/20 = 96%
At Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Primary School we want to develop every child's passion for reading. We encourage our children to read lots of different types of books to develop their reading skills, expand their knowledge and become inspired.
Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. Likewise, evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who do not, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.
