At Oakfield Community Primary and Nusery School, our primary aim is to increase children's confidence, enjoyment, and ability in reading, writing and communication.We believe that reading is an essential life skill and reading lies at the heart of our curriculum. 

We ensure that we provide all children with depth, breadth, and ambition in their learning - ensuring that our curriculum is well sequenced and builds on knowledge and skills gained as the children progress through the school. Through the use of high quality tests, we aim to ensure that reading is a transferable skill and that children are reading across the wider curriculum. 

We foster a love of reading by listening to and interacting with a variety of literature, non-fiction and poetry Our aim is to build a community of engaged readers who turn to reading for meaning and pleasure by engaging with parents and incorporating visitis to our local library. 

Author focus 

All our classes are named after famous authors. As children move though the school, they have opportunities to read and listen to stories by these authors - how many of these authors are you familiar with?
