Chris Riddell UK Children’s Laureate (2015-2017)

At Victoria our aim is for every child to have a passion for reading and to become fluent readers, showing high levels of achievement and exhibit positive attitudes towards reading, especially reading for pleasure.

To ensure that all children reach their full potential across the curriculum, we take a consistent and rigorous approach to the teaching of reading, starting with a phonics scheme beginning in the early years. We want all children to consider themselves a reader and be able to independently explore genres and texts. We want our children to read widely and often and take part in discussions about their favourite texts. Throughout their school careers, we want to provide children with exciting reading experiences to encourage a love of reading.
