A great resource for all primary schools!

Have you come across the updated and revised version of "Building an outstanding reading school" by Oxford Owl?

This report is about the relationship between a school’s reading culture and children’s attainment. It considers how reading for pleasure can be organised to support all children to become confident, keen and capable readers. It is about becoming an outstanding reading school.

The report explores six strategies that help to develop a reading school. These strategies will support leadership teams in reflecting on existing provision within their schools and how to build effective systems to embed a culture of reading. Recent research and case studies from successful schools illustrate good practice. The report includes practical ideas to inspire staff, inform classroom practice and help a reading culture to flourish.

For each strategy, action points are suggested to prompt discussion and support schools to reflect on their provision and its impact. At the end of the report there is an audit form to help schools plan for development.
