Reading at Hope

New Library update....It's almost ready!

Power of Reading at Hope Primary

Hope Primary introduced Power of Reading in September 2018. This short film highlights the impact so far on both children and teachers.


Reading is at the very heart of our school. We aim to make sure that all of our children become confident and happy readers, with a real love for books. We do this as a whole school community, working in partnership with our parents, libraries, parishioners, other local schools and the wider community.

This page is to celebrate our work as we 'read together for pleasure'. You will find pictures of events and recent reading cafes, useful websites, recommended reading books and a guide for how to support children in their reading. We hope you enjoy our reading page and find it useful!

Enjoy storytime with Hope staff. Our staff have recorded either entire books or selected chapters for the children to read along with at home. Books are available to take home from the class teacher. 

They are available by selecting Pupils tab above, then select Storytime or click on the link below.

Gold, Gold, Gold!


Liverpool Reading Quality Mark in associate with the National Literacy Trust

Liverpool Reading Quality Mark (RQM) has been developed with a focus to promote reading for enjoyment amongst children.

A recent study conducted by the Institute for Education found that children who read for pleasure are likely to do significantly better than their peers.

Schools can be accredited with a bronze, silver or gold award which recognises the effort that they have made in promoting the joy of reading amongst their pupils.  In order to attain these awards schools are assessed across six themes.

Key themes:

  • Leadership and management
  • Workforce development
  • Reading promotion
  • Reading events and groups
  • School wide opportunities for reading for enjoyment
  • Family/community involvement/public  library service


We were assessed by a member of the local authority, who spent the day looking around our school, speaking to staff, governors, members of our wider community and of course our pupils. 

We were delighted to be awarded gold!

Well done to everyone involved.
