Inspiring learning, achieving together


We want ALL our children to leave Crowcroft Park in Year 6 able to read confidently and fluently and most of all we want our children to LOVE reading.

It is very important that all the children have opportunities to read every day - this can be in the form of comics, newspapers, e-books, fiction, non fiction. Make sure as a family you put time aside each day to have a quiet time when everyone reads something.  Reading opens many doors for people it allows us to  experience things that may only exist in our dreams.

All our children have a reading day when they share their books with a member of staff.  Please send in your child’s reading book every day.

Make a difference to your child and encourage them to read!
