At Overleigh we believe it is essential to encourage children to love books and to become readers in every sense of the word. Through the use of motivational and wide-ranging stimuli we guide children to develop and extend their imagination and to express their own ideas in writing across a range of genres.

Literacy can be defined as the combined skills and knowledge of reading, writing and oral language. In our school these skills are taught through a cross-curricular approach, engaging children as they experience a wide range of exciting, thought-provoking activities.
