At The Abbey we recognise that reading is a vital life skill that will impact on our student's independence. We believe reading enriches children's vocabulary, their writing and spelling skills, and also provides them with access to the wider curriculum. It is skill that many of our students have struggled with for many years prior to starting at The Abbey. It is a priority for us a school to create a culture for reading and provide the best reading experiences for our students.

We aspire to ensure that all students leave The Abbey reading to the very best of their ability but also to have developed a love of reading that will last a life time!
