Let Your Light Shine


We are passionate about reading as we believe that it is the gateway to learning. Our aim is for children to learn to read fluently as quickly as possible. We encourage them to develop a love of reading and of books so that they read for pleasure. We teach Read Write Phonics so that children learn how to develop quickly into confident, accurate and fluent readers.
