Vision for Reading at Hangleton:

Becoming a confident reader is central to all that we do and we focus on ensuring that children can express themselves, talk about their reading and quickly develop a love of stories and books in order to make links and help them make sense of the world around them. Rigorous daily phonics begins in week one of reception and allows our children to make rapid progress. Our children read every day and are read aloud to every day so that children experience reading as calming, nurturing and enjoyable and children quickly see themselves as readers.

We believe that equipping children with reading skills allows them to access the wider curriculum, leads to success in all areas of their education, inspires creativity, boosts self-confidence and offers greater potential to go on to lead rewarding and enriching lives.

At Hangleton, we recognise that there are similarities and differences between individuals and groups and we will strive to ensure that our differences do not become barriers to participation, access and learning. We have deliberately created inclusive processes and practices, where the needs of individuals and groups are quickly identified and interventions carefully planned to ensure that no child is left behind.
