Here at The Laurels Primary School, we believe that our children are the most important people and we endeavour to give ALL children lots of opportunities to share their thoughts and opinions and play an active role in the decisions that affect their learning and well-being.
We have lots of ways that the children can do this formally, such as through the school council, pupil questionnaires and worry boxes. However we also want to create an ethos that allows the children to regularly share their opinions in an informal way, in class and also to Miss Bull. Miss Bull’s door is always open to children (and staff!)
Being a Reading Ambassador is all about reading for pleasure and sharing the deep enjoyment of reading a great book. Our Reading Ambassadors have been chosen for their love of reading and their enthusiasm to share this with others.
Part of the job of a Reading Ambassador is to encourage others in school to read more, and find their own love of reading. There is much research that shows children who read regularly at home perform better at school. As well as being beneficial to learning, it is also lots of fun when you find the right types of books for you!
