At Eldon Grove Academy we believe that reading for pleasure should be a fundamental part of childhood and lifelong learning whatever the child’s ability, background or culture. We believe that every one of our children deserves a rich curriculum which encourages extensive reading of, and exposure to, a wide range of texts.

Listed below are our English and Reading Policies. There is also a link to our reading resource, Bugclub.

We have compiled a book list, in consultation with teachers, parents and pupils. We have included texts we know our pupils will enjoy but the list is by no means exhaustive – it is merely a work in progress. It may be useful to you in selecting books for your child/children to read.
