Berridge Primary and Nursery SchoolWorking Together to Achieve Success



The more you read, the more things you will know, the more that you learn the more places you’ll go-Dr Seuss


At Berridge, we want to develop our children’s imagination to open up a treasure trove of wonder and joy for curious young minds and as such reading is a priority in our school.


We understand the important role the school environment plays in fostering a love of reading in our children. Our school environment encourages a passion for reading inside the classroom and beyond, reflecting our belief that reading is at the heart of learning.


As a school community, we place great importance on a child’s reading for pleasure habits, reading attainment and knowledge acquisition through the sequential teaching of reading no matter what their starting point, background or additional needs they may have.
