We are delighted to announce that after our recent assessment in the Liverpool Reading Quality Mark, we were awarded SILVER status. This shows how the whole school is committed to ‘Reading for Pleasure’. This is a fantastic achievement for the school. A huge thank you to all of the parents, pupils, staff, governors and community who have supported us in achieving this award. A summary report of the success in meeting the criteria and the strengths of the school can be found attached to this page.

At MPPS, we LOVE reading!
We encourage reading through a range of activities and by providing supportive environments for children to enjoy reading for pleasure. Reading records are used to monitor reading as well as communicating between home and school. At MPPS we use a selection of quality levelled reading schemes, including Oxford Reading Tree and Collins Big Cats, to help build fluency, stamina, confidence and important reading skills that children need in order to progress. We also supplement these schemes with quality texts that are not on any scheme to ensure that the children receive a range of appropriate fiction and non-fiction texts.

Well done to this year's 'Best Dressed' winners!
