A nurturing, one-form entry primary school in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire.
A child that grows up a reader is given an immediate advantage in life. An advantage academically, socially and emotionally.
At Kenilworth we promote regular reading through a whole school reading rockstars initiative – every child that reads 5 times a week is entered into ‘The Mysterious Bag Of Names’ for the chance to win a prize. At the end of each half term the children that have made it into the bag every week are also rewarded – this half term we invited the 51 children that were in the bag every week to a film night after school. They had a fantastic time watching an adaptation of the classic text – Peter Rabbit, by Beatrix Potter.
As part of our home-school agreement, we ask every parent to hear their child read a minimum of three times per week. This commitment to reading from parents and guardians ensures that all children are given the opportunity to succeed.
