Reading is an essential part of our curriculum that supports students learning, well-being and development of cultural capital. We have a bespoke mentor time reading programme.
In every key stage, there is a part of their mentor time curriculum where students read.
At KS3 we read in at least two mentor sessions a week and for a minimum of 25 minutes per session. Quality reading is modelled by all the staff here at Shoreham Academy.
Reading exposes your child to a vast range of vocabulary that perhaps is not always familiar. This helps them develop their reading ability their writing accuracy and their verbal confidence (oracy).

Can you guess which member of staff is reading here…
We have our RED boxes placed around the school site. These are our Read Every Day boxes, which students can borrow from anytime. We want to ensure all students have the opportunity to have a book to read. If you have spare books at home that you would like to donate, please send in for the attention our librarian, Rachel Johnson.
Are you able to spare time each week to support some of younger students with their reading? If this something you would like training on how to do and you have the availability please do contact Bryher Armstrong.
