Reading at Corpus Christi


Our intent at Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School is that all pupils develop a love of reading acquiring the fundamental knowledge, skills and understanding to become lifelong learners and linguists. We aim for our pupils to achieve ‘high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment’ (National Curriculum for English).

It is our intention to immerse pupils in the wonders of quality texts to instil a love for reading, a passion for discovery and a confidence to explore their imagination.

From EYFS to Year 6, we strive to deliver a range of opportunities to cultivate each pupil, including those that are disadvantaged and pupils with SEND, enabling them to reach their full potential and provide foundations for their future learning.

We have high expectations, set ambitious targets and build upon pupil’s prior learning so that they continually develop their confidence and competence in reading. We appreciate and value the importance and impact that English skills and knowledge have across the curriculum and provide a range of opportunities to enable our pupils to apply these skills. At Corpus Christi, we place high value on the key skills of reading and how the importance of reading books impacts significantly on a pupil’s future success in life
