At Michaelchurch Escley Primary School we believe that a quality reading curriculum should cultivate children’s love of reading, develop a curiosity for books and help them to establish the habit of reading widely and often. We value reading as a key life skill and are dedicated to enabling all of our pupils to become lifelong readers.  In addition, we believe reading is key for academic success and are committed to ensuring that our curriculum is designed and adapted to meet the needs of all children.
