Oak Class has won Buster's Book club 1st Autumn Challenge Day for Sevenoaks district which was held on Wednesday 18th October – very well done to them. Two children will be invited to attend a Challenge Day photo call where they will be presented with our winners’ certificate and prize vouchers.
Fordcombe School has been awarded the Gold Literacy Mark! The main contributing factor is our 'Buster's Book Club' after-school reading promotion scheme and how the pupils at Fordcombe added to the 7 million minutes of reading that pupils in participating primary schools achieved last year. Reading for pleasure has a hugely positive effect upon a child's academic success and wellbeing, both at primary school and beyond. Thank you to all the pupils and parents who remember to record their minutes of reading on a Wednesday evening. Further thanks to our Reading Angels and librarians who generously give their time to hear readers and promote healthy reading habits across the school.
