Love reading

At Hope School we use the Ruth Miskins - Read, Write Inc. phonics programme to help develop the reading skills of our pupils.


We also use Project X for our guided reading sessions which we complete twice per week

Project X is a modern, whole-school reading and writing programme specially developed to motivate boys and address the gender gap in literacy. They include:-

  • Highly motivating books and interactive digital resources that inspire our children.
  • Research-based programmes, written by experts, designed to help every child succeed.


At Hope School we dedicate a lot of time to encourage a love of reading within our pupils, this includes daily independent and whole class reading. We  believe that reading encourages imagination and want all our pupils to think outside of the box when achieving goals and ambitions. Each of our classrooms has a cosy reading corner or 'nook' to provide pupils comfort whilst reading. Parents and carers are expected to read with pupils for a minimum of three times a week, both at home and within the community to help promote a child's love of reading and social skills. watch this space to see how you can join in our goals to help our children have a lifelong love of reading.

Reading ambassadors


Reading ambassadors will soon be picked to help encourage a love of reading both within the school and the community. We are planning to take trips to residential homes and pet shelters to see if we can make a small difference in someone's day with a good book.


Keep checking to see what our reading ambassadors have been up to...!
