We are reading!

We are proud to be taking part in, and coordinating Lancashire's 'We are reading!' campaign for our district.  On this page, you will find our reading pledge and also examples of how we, as a school, are instilling a love of reading for pleasure in our school family.  


The Pledge

Balderstone St Leonard's CE Primary school 


During the year of reading, we are committed to:

o Becoming a reading school

o Seeking out every opportunity to improve standards in reading within our school

o Encouraging reading for pleasure

o Enabling children to read in depth in a wide range of subjects, deepening their knowledge and understanding across the curriculum

o Working with other schools, our local library and other partners to promote reading as a life-long skill.
