Silver Award Liverpool Reading Quality Mark

Over the past year our school has been working towards achieving the Liverpool Reading Quality Mark and we are delighted to announce that we have achieved the Silver award! In partnership with the National Literacy Trust, the Liverpool Reading Quality Mark has been developed to focus on promoting reading for enjoyment.

We were assessed by a member of the local authority, who spent time touring our school, interviewing staff, pupils and our Governor. It is a great achievement for our school and we are thrilled that this externally accredited award recognises our efforts to promote reading!

Here are some comments from our Reading Quality Mark report:

‘The learning walk evidenced the consistency in approach to developing reading skills across subject disciplines and staff commitment to the promotion of relevant, subject-specific fiction and non-fiction texts’

‘Training has been sourced and provided for all staff in reading strategies and staff interviewed reported that impact in lessons is beginning to be seen with improvements to pace and pupil independence’

’Regular DEAR days have seen innovation and commitment from teachers beyond the English department’

‘Displays across the school successfully promote and support reading for pleasure and pupil voice is evident in the displays’
