Elmhurst Primary School wins national Reading for Pleasure Award!

We are pleased to announce that Elmhurst Primary School are joint winners of the UKLA Egmont Reading for Pleasure Whole School Award for 2019. The winners of the fiercely-contested award were announced at a Reading for Pleasure conference, hosted at Elmhurst on Saturday 16th March. The competition was judged by an expert panel of authors, publishers, professors and national literacy organisations.

The judges really loved the fact that Elmhurst Primary School arranges to take all of our pupils to bookshops and to the library, that we give books as Christmas presents. They also commented on our annual bedtime story sessions. You can see our competition entry here to find out about all the work that the school has done to promote reading for pleasure.
