Primary Academy


Our reading lead at Rushden Primary Academy is Miss Anderson. 

We all love reading here at RPA which is why our library is at the heart of our school and why books are at the heart of our curriculum. Our children are taught the value of reading for pleasure and reading widely. Talk for Reading and Booktalk strategies are used to ensure that our children are immersed in quality literature and exposed to ambitious vocabulary.


By promoting our school ethos of ‘Respect, Pride and Achieve’, together with our Red Kite Values, our young people will have the character traits, knowledge, and skills to make a positive impact on the world. 

All pupils at RPA will grow in their ability to decode, read with fluency, stamina, and appropriate pace. Their exposure to a range of increasingly challenging texts which are at the heart of our English curriculum are both relevant to life and our core values help students to understand the purpose and application for their reading skills.
