Lincolnshire Reading Pledge Award Winners!

Reading for Pleasure celebrated in school!

We are proud to announce we have been awarded the Lincolnshire Reading Pledge Bronze award!

The Lincolnshire Reading Pledge has been developed by Witham St Hugh’s English Hub and L.E.A.D. Teaching School Hub, working in collaboration with Professor Teresa Cremin (Reading for Pleasure & The Open University).

As you know, at Deeping St James, we value the importance of Reading for Pleasure and the positive impact it can have on our pupils lives. The ultimate aim of the Lincolnshire Reading Pledge is to ensure that every child, regardless of their background, needs or abilities, becomes a confident, fluent and enthusiastic reader. There really is no greater gift we can give to our children as a school and as parents.

To achieve the award staff and pupils worked towards meeting a range of criteria throughout the academic year.

Thank you to parents, staff and children who supported our World Book Day and reading workshops which helped towards the achievement. Our Reading Champions have made a fantastic contribution towards school attaining this award - thank you and well done to them all!

Well done, Mr Bell, as our English Lead, who supported both school and the Reading Champions through the process!

We look forward to continuing our Reading Pledge journey next year and marching on towards Silver!
