Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils

Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils

Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils (RTRP) ignites a love of reading in teachers and children. Studies have shown that reading for pleasure is the biggest single indicator of a child’s future success. RTRP is making a difference through a network of reading teachers who are building communities of readers.


This is the 4th year that we have been lucky enough to participate in the Cheltenham Literature Festival.

Last year all the pupils in KS2 visited the festival and met authors. Unfortunately, we cannot visit this year but there is a great deal of events surrounding the festival, which can be accessed virtually this year.

 When we are allowed to let you know, we will tell you the first book for this year !!
