The Trust at the heart of the Batley community
Healey Junior, Infant and Nursery School were delighted to be featured as a successful case study with Ruth Miskin Training recently.
The Headteacher, Luisa Lang has instilled a love of learning and a passion for reading across the whole school since the first day she arrived. Upon your arrival at the school, one of the first things that greets you are the lovely displays about the current books being read in school, and the well stocked library. Each week parents/carers have the opportunity to come in with their children and borrow books to read at home with the whole family.
Luisa Lang introduced the Read Write Inc phonics programme and huge success has been evidenced. Children are motivated and engaged with the lessons and the resources as they like the routine and structure. Parents are impressed by the progress children are making in school. The stories are engaging and fun, and children enjoy re-reading the stories to build their fluency. Reading is a key life skill, and is so fundamental to wellbeing. Reading is also a great way to develop your vocabulary, your imagination, and to relax. After all, you are never alone when you have a good book.
