Halton Community Combined School

Together, our community

inspires a love of learning and

enables children to find their voice.


We aim to develop a love of reading in pupils of all ages; the school is well stocked with a range of children's literature from authors past and present and a range of engaging reading activities are timetabled daily in all classes. The school follows the 'Letter & Sounds' phonics programme.

We use a large number of reading schemes to support the development of early reading and to ensure that children experience a range of different genres e.g. fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts. Some of the reading schemes used are: Collins Big Cat, Oxford Reading Tree, Rigby Rocket, Oxford Literacy Web, Songbirds, Ginn, Flying Boot, , All Aboard, Snapdragons, Rigby Star, Young Puffins
