Please ensure that you and your staff are familiar with the DfE guidance available online at
Lord Agnew (Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the School System) issued a letter to Directors of Children’s Services requesting that it is shared with state schools. Read the ‘Guidance for schools on leaving the EU’ letter online.

Time to Read


Time To Read is a campaign delivering free books to reception aged children across England during the autumn term.

Each pupil will receive:

  • special gift envelope containing a storybook
  • parent/ carer information leaflet.

This year's Time To Read book is The Cave by Rob Hodgson. This colourful and quirky picture book tells a story of a hungry and persistent wolf and a shy little creature.

Packs will be delivered direct to your school.


Research shows that a child who reads for pleasure will do better at school, even in subjects like maths. Not only that, but if a family read books together, it's a great way to bond, talk about the day, and have a lot of fun!
