At Bank View, we value reading as a key life skill and are dedicated to enabling our pupils to become lifelong readers. We believe that a quality reading curriculum should develop the children’s enthusiasm and love of reading.  We aim to instil this through the culture of our school where reading for pleasure is highly valued and by providing a stimulating and immersive reading environment.

Reading is at the heart of our curriculum and supports all school life with skills being developed through a range of rich and varied learning opportunities. 

All classes have a ‘Lets read’ session every morning led by the form team. There is more information about ‘Lets read’ and the books used here: Lets Read

Bank View currently holds the bronze Reading Quality Mark. We are being reassessed on July 4th 2023 and are hopeful of achieving silver..
