Reading at School

At St Joseph’s, we hold central to the creation of our curriculum, the belief that reading is at the core of all successful learning. We are proud of our position as a reading school and prioritise every pupils’ development towards becoming a fluent, intuitive and aspirational reader; as a leisure activity, to aid positive wellbeing and finally as a key to unlocking the wider world of learning. Opportunities for reading, both for pleasure and for education, are built into all areas of our wider curriculum and we passionately advocate the rights of all children to learn to read successfully and with enjoyment.

Children can visit our school library during school hours and take books home.

It is encouraged for children to read as much as possible. Manchester has many libraries which you can join and visit. Follow this link for more information
