Reading at Beacon View

Reading is an important part of a child’s education as it allows them to access all other subjects, but in particular will help them to develop their writing skills. At Beacon View Primary Academy we aim for all children to enter their secondary school being able to read at age expectation. To achieve this we believe that there has to be a strong partnership and commitment between the school, parents and the child.

  • As a school we will ensure that every child;
  • has an opportunity to enhance their reading skills within daily guided reading sessions
  • will have access to a range of books to read for enjoyment
  • will take home an ability appropriate reading book each day
  • have access to the local public library each term
  • will read to an adult each day


We ask all parents to ensure their child/ren;

  • brings into school their reading book each day
  • reads at home at least three times a week
  • brings in their Reading Record Diary each day signed by their parent/carer
  • is encouraged to read a variety of text e.g. signs, newspapers, cereal boxes etc

We expect all children to;

  • bring in their book bag and reading book each day
  • bring in to school each day their signed Reading Record Diary
  • take home every day their book from the book corner and/or reading book
