Reading Ambassadors

At Broughton Hall, we believe in encouraging our students to read for pleasure as evidence illustrates the importance of reading for both educational purposes as well as personal development. In addition, there is also an acknowledgement that a positive relationship between reading frequency and reading enjoyment supports a student’s attainment level across all subjects, including Maths and Science. Early engagement in wider reading prepares students for the demands of GCSE and A Level exam preparation and reading around the topics covered helps to build independent learning skills which are essential in today’s competitive world. GCSEs in RE, Geography, History, as well as English Language and Literature, are now assessed on levels of literacy, and the demands of new National Curriculum place a greater emphasis on reading.

Pupils within Broughton Hall have been coming forward to help promote reading for pleasure with pupils in younger years, not only promoting the love of reading but also building relationships and helping others to learn. Through 2016 we also had parent helpers come into school each Friday morning as the school read for pleasure to again help motivate and encourage year 7 pupils.
