Reading at LPSB

We recognise that reading is central to the delivery of our vision and values.

Through use of class readers and The Day in tutor periods, and subject specific reading in all subjects, students are exposed to a wide range of reading material throughout our curriculum.

The Day

The Day is an online daily newspaper for young people. Each day they publish articles on the most current issues shaping our world. All resources are designed to help students learn critical thinking, real-world knowledge and civic engagement.

Students use these resources in their tutor periods and subject lessons, but students and families can also be reading articles at home too. Content is available for students from KS3-5.

You can access the website by simply clicking here – no login details needed.
