As you know we did a survey of Reading habits and choices in January 2017 as we are very interested in getting your views about Reading at school and home.
It was fantastic to know that all of you enjoyed reading and were able to say how important it was because it helps you in absolutely everything! You were able to tell me that most of you visit the local library regularly and that you enjoy the books that you take home to read too.
Some of you wanted more opportunities to read to someone at school and we have listened to that. After half term we are setting up reading buddy classes, you'll be able to help younger children read and be able to read to a reading buddy at school too.
Other suggestions that you made about reading in school-
• You’d like a fun reading club, perhaps with comics, internet reading material, info-graphic books, magazines and puppets.
• Have a 'reader of the week' certificate in assembly.
We are going to set up an outdoor reading space especially for KS2 by summer 2017. We will be opening that area at playtimes and lunchtimes so that you can read with friends in a special dedicated and calm reading space. We will be buying lots of new and exciting books for you to read now that we know you really enjoy reading magazines, funny stories, poems, comics and plays.
We will be looking out for 'reading champions' to organise an inter school reading competition and a poem writing competition about a favourite book.
These exciting suggestions are happening because of your feedback to the reading survey so thank you very much for completing it, we enjoyed reading every single one of the replies.
On the subject of reading I hope you are reading lots of books to raise money for less fortunate children in hospitals. The Readathon will end on the first day back in the summer term-we will then ask you to bring in your sponsor money and there will be a prize for the person who has read the most books, so keep reading and raising money!

Extreme Reading Awards Ceremony
We are delighted to inform you that following a visit in December 2017 by external assessors, we have been awarded the Ealing Reading Quality Mark (ERQM) at Bronze Level. Pupils were presented with the plaque at a special ceremony on Tuesday 6th February 2018. The award was presented to Tudor pupils by the Mayor of Ealing at The Alec Reed Academy.
The reviewers were particularly impressed by the positive involvement of parents and pupils in our many workshops and activities across the school. This includes regular events such as Soft Start, Family Friday, Learning village etc. as well as Curriculum Meetings, Parent Language and Phonic workshops, Adult Education classes held on site etc.
Our pupils enjoy a variety of literary experiences including poetry performances, theatre visits, reading competitions, storytelling workshops, Reading Buddies, World Book day and more! The recent performance of Romeo and Juliet by the visiting theatre company and our current KS2 Reading Challenge competition all add to our pupils’ experiences. They were also very impressed with all the hard work that Mrs Lewis our school librarian does in our school library! Well done everyone!
