Just Imagine and St Matthew’s Hub (Midlands)

Just Imagine are thrilled to be working with St Matthew’s Primary School. Headteacher Dr Paulette Osborne and Deputy Headteacher Sonia Thompson write ‘St Matthew’s is an outstanding primary school which lives and breathes reading.  We aim to use the very best, research-informed approaches to teach children to read confidently and critically.  We also work hard to share our love of reading, to build communities of readers and embed a culture of reading for pleasure.  Despite being in an area of very high social and economic deprivation, our reading results consistently above national averages but we are even prouder of the fact that over 90% of our children say that they like or love reading and choose to read for pleasure’.
