Reading at Whetley Academy

Reading is at the heart of our school curriculum and every child has access to hundreds of books either in their own classroom or in special, designated areas around the school. Every classroom has a bespoke reading corner to engage and enthuse our pupils. All children take quality texts home to read every day and they also have time to read throughout the school day.
