How we prioritise reading

Newquay Junior Academy is proud of its provision of a progressive reading curriculum. We recognise that reading is an essential skill therefore, reading lessons are prioritised. Each class has a daily 30 minute teaching of reading session using the DERICS (Decode, Explain, Retrieve, Interpret, Choice and Summarise) approach.

Newquay Junior Academy has a new modern library, which is well stocked with over 8000 books available for pupils to borrow. Alongside this, workshops on how to help your child read continue to be delivered to parents and carers on a regular basis.
