Herbert Strutt Primary School

We Care, Challenge, Achieve and Open Minds

We are really excited to be part of Project READ in Derbyshire; it is an innovative programme to improve pupils' reading from EYFS to Year 6.

The aim of the project is to inspire children to want to be readers and to improve outcomes in our school for reading.

Mrs Howell is our Project READ Champion and will be involved in training staff and leading the project.

Our staff will be trained by Specialist Leaders in Education for phonics; vocabulary; and comprehension.

We want all of our children to:

  • Learn to read
  • Read to learn
  • Love reading 

Focus:  As a response to the needs of our pupils, we will be focusing on two aspects over the year. These will be: developing vocabulary; and developing inference as pupils read.  

Talk Champions:  These will be Mrs Howell (KS2) and Mrs Doyle (KS1) 

Reading Champions: Mrs Howell (KS2) and Mrs Marshall (KS1)
