Bradford Scheme helps transform reluctant writers into budding bards (T&A Article)

 

Please find the original article here.

A SCHEME to get more of Bradford's young people engaged in writing and poetry by providing literary role models is helping turn reluctant writers into budding bards.

 

The National Literacy Trust Hub in Bradford was set up to deal with the large numbers of young people in the city who left school with poor skills in reading and writing.

 

The trust recognised that one issue facing the district was the high number of boys who had poor literacy skills, many of whom seemed reluctant to pick up a book. Several schools in the district were identified as having a "significant gender gap" when it came to reading.

 

Our School

We are a popular, two-form entry community school, with excellent facilities, located at the heart of the Canterbury estate in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

We have twelve age group based classes, for learners aged between four and eleven. Our learners are motivated and enthusiastic, they concentrate and achieve well by taking responsibility for themselves, their learning and their environment. Our staff team work hard to ensure that all children make rapid progress.

Every individual child is important to us.

 

We are a school with big ambitions:

We have a newly opened 'state of the art' Learning Resource Centre where children and parents can share and borrow books and learning materials together. We are also currently working to develop our extensive outdoor facilities, which will also be shared with the community.

Horton Park Primary SchoolWe meet the needs of our local children and their families through the school, our links with local nursuries, 'MyBD5' primary and local secondary schools, community facilities, Multi-Use Games Area and extensive grounds.

Our school community has the ambition and drive to improve and has been judged as very effective by OfSTED.

We work together to provide every child with a brilliant start to their school life.

Our dedicated and hard-working staff are very proud of Horton Park and the community we work with.

 

 

We welcome visitors – Please contact us by e-mail or telephone

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mrs Salma Rahman

Head of School
