At Westborough we believe that the best way to ensure that pupils do well in English is to ensure that they become life-long engaged readers! Children and staff at Westborough are enthusiastic readers and we endeavour to foster a love and passion for reading in our children from the beginning of their journey with us and hope this love stays with them well beyond their time with us.
We want to encourage and develop a passion for reading always seeking to find the right book for the right child to open a world they can escape to and enjoy. Teachers make regular recommendations to pupils to encourage reading for pleasure. Pupils also have a chance to talk to their teachers regularly about their reading habits, as part of our new termly Reading Surveys.

Author of the month!
We have an author of the month at school, this month it is Pamela Butchart https://www.
Westborough was delighted to welcome Justin Coe, a local performance poet and author, into school on the 2nd December for an assembly full of poetry fun! The children have been learning about performance poetry in Reading and Oracy lessons and this a great opportunity for them to see a live performance!
Justin officially opened our newly refurbished library with our new pupil librarians. We shared more photos in our newsletter - it looks fabulous!
