St Francis Xavier's RC Primary School

‘Love one another as I have loved you’ John 15:12




At St. Francis Xavier's School, we aim for ALL our children to become confident, fluent readers as well as nourishing and developing their personal preferences to foster a real LIFELONG love of reading.

A small amount of reading each day makes an incredible difference and the cost of not doing so is far too great!


Our 20 minute home/school reading pact!


We promise to read with your child for AT LEAST 10 minutes a day


You match it by reading with your child for a further 10 minutes a day at home


10 mins at home       +        10 mins at school        = the MAGIC 20 mins a day!


Why do this?


Reception reading about the tadpoles

A love of reading in the snow- the reception children enjoyed winter tales in the immersion room.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Love of Reading: Year 1 and Year 5
