There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island

At St Mary’s, we believe in giving every child the opportunity to develop their reading skills whilst simultaneously fostering a love of reading. Children at our school will become not only readers but thinkers, questioning the texts they are exposed to in order to make sense of the world around them and their place within it.



We want to enable all our pupils to reach their full potential in becoming young writers.  Through age appropriate books, the children are given opportunities and experiences that engage them; allowing them to successfully write for a range of genres whilst promoting and fostering a love of reading that we hope they will take with them throughout their lives.
