Resources for parents

At APPS we pride ourselves on having an established culture of reading for pleasure.

We know that learning to read is key to a child's development, to their ability to access the rich and broad curriculum and is essential to their future success in life.

If you do anything as a parent to support your child's learning at home, please read with them: read to them, read with them and listen to them read and most of all enjoy new worlds, adventures, stories, graphic novels and information books!


Please find below some useful links and further documents attached to develop your child's love of reading!
