Well over 3,500 schools took part in Read for My School this year, which is a national reading competition for children aged 7 - 13, delivered by Pearson and Book Trust with support from the Department for Education
We are delighted to say that Padiham Primary School has been named as the North West regional winner of the Read for My School Whole-School Reading Culture Award 2015.
This award recognises the whole-hearted participation of our KS2 pupils in Read for My School this year and also the contribution made by all the staff members at Padiham Primary School who have helped to create a culture of reading within the school.
The North West regional event was held on 9 June, at Archbishop Temple School, Preston. Children and teachers attended the event and were presented with the award of a voucher worth £1,000 to spend with Pearson Education by author Ellie Irving.
Our school’s application really impressed the judges and will be considered for the National Reading Culture Award 2015.
