Reading Leadership Scheme
The Reading Leadership scheme, is a scheme run BY students FOR students. At the core of the scheme is the belief that ALL students of East Bergholt High School deserve to be given the opportunity to READ WELL and ENJOY IT. KS4 students read alongside a KS3 student weekly in the LRC during citizenship time. This not only develops reading skills, but strengthens peer relationships and builds confidence in students. All Reading Leaders have to submit a formal application and are fully trained before commencing their roles.
The LRC has a team of over 30 Student Librarians who work tirelessly to run the LRC at break and lunchtimes, and make it what it is. The scheme is open to ALL STUDENTS, who are fully trained and paired with a buddy before commencing their timetabled duties.
Annually in April, we host 17 of our feeder primary schools to take part alongside our Year 7 Spelling Bee team. We created the Championship to highlight literacy, to celebrate the English language, and to offer students from 32 catchment schools the opportunity to work with us. Prior to the Championship, we support participating schools through the development of a Spelling Resource Pack and practice visits to schools. The film of the Championships was created by BBC Suffolk and has been viewed over 27,000 times. You can watch the film on our YouTube channel here. Our Spelling Bee Resource Pack can be found here. While our Reading Well for young people book list can be found here.
