Reading at Chetwynde

Reading is at the heart of Chetwynde. It is the foundation block that underpins the whole school curriculum and the gateway to lifelong success in the world. As a teaching team, we understand how vital it is for our children to be confident readers for academic success and good wellbeing.


As a student of Chetwynde, your child will be encouraged to find a true love of reading for pleasure that we hope will last a lifetime, but we need parent support to get them there!


We hope these pages offer ideas and resources that can help you to support your child's reading adventure!

“Let’s be reasonable and add an eighth day to the week that is devoted exclusively to reading.” – Lena Dunham.         “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies… the man who never reads lives only one.”– George R.R. Martin.
