2015-2016 UKLA Literacy School of the Year announced

UKLA LitThe UK Literacy Association is proud to announce the 2015-2016 recipient of our new award for schools. St Peters Church of England Primary School, Bristol is the 2015-2016 UKLA Literacy School of the Year: A school where literacy thrives

St. Peter’s CofE Primary School is an outstanding school located on the edge of the city of Bristol.  All of the children are encouraged to aim for excellence and to fulfil their individual potential – academically, socially and personally. The school is set in large, well-designed and spacious grounds which are used to support and enhance the curriculum. The school serves an area of high social deprivation, where a large proportion of the pupils are in receipt of the Pupil Premium; however, the school secures outstanding progress and excellent outcomes for all of its pupils.

The assessors were most impressed by the way that St. Peter’s places literacy at the heart of its curriculum.  Each topic studied is based on a text which is introduced to the children in exciting and innovative ways, so that children are immersed in the world of the book.  Both fiction and non-fiction books are used in class sets, so that every child can have a personal copy of the book.  The school has been determined in assuring that their stock of books, both class sets and the books which children can borrow from their class libraries, is kept up to date and frequently refreshed.  Children are all encouraged to read at home and through prizes and gifts from the school, will have been enabled to build up their own library of books at home.
