Top Tips on Encouraging your Child to Read

Published 6 February

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us at our recent Parents’ Association Meeting. During the meeting, we discussed the topic of ‘Reading’. It is an exciting time having children at secondary school, as your child grows up and becomes more independent.

Mrs Hewetson, Librarian at St Bart’s, shares some top tips on encouraging your child to read.
