At Farnham Green Primary, we strive to inspire our children to understand the importance of reading and how it can shape the journey of their life.

At Farnham Green Primary, we believe in a rigorous and sequential approach to the teaching of early reading to allow our children to apply their phonics knowledge and develop fluency and a love of reading. We aim for our children to become confident, fluent readers who can discuss and critically evaluate a range of reading materials and texts. 

Through our ambitious and immersive curriculum, we recognise the importance of developing our children as highly competent readers so that they are enthused with a love of books, inspired as writers and able to participate fully in society.

 Reading also feeds pupils' imagination and opens up a treasure house of wonder and joy for curious minds"
