Liverpool Reading Quality Mark

We are proud to announce that Penkford School were awarded the Liverpool Reading Quality Mark - Silver, which is an important award that recognises how we promote reading amongst our pupils.

The award was awarded through School Improvement Liverpool - experts in education and one of the leading service providers in the North West.

Instrumental to this fantastic achievement was our Reading Advocate, Ms Duffy.

Our school had to pass tough criteria, and we achieved accreditation through assessment on six themes:

  • Leadership and Management
  • Workforce Development
  • Reading Promotion
  • Reading Events and Groups
  • School Wide Opportunities for Reading for Pleasure
  • Family/Community Involvement/Public Library Service

We gained positive feedback on how our staff are committed to establishing and embedding a reading for pleasure culture in school, through our Governance, classroom practice and after school activities. We aim to show that this award is another demonstration on how we continue to improve functional literacy and numeracy, so that pupils make consistently strong progress from their individual starting points.
