Can we increase the amount of home reading that we do?

School Council met this week to talk about Read to Succeed and made suggestions about how we could improve reading at Southroyd. As part of a Lent challenge, we set ourselves the target to improve our own reading. We talked about the benefits of reading and how we could improve reading in school and in the wider community.

What is Equality? How can we be heroes of social justice in Southroyd?

As part of our half term focus on social justice and equality, in January 2017, we looked as a school at heroes like Martin Luther KIng and Malala Yousufzai, and their stance for equality. We asked class councils to rethink about how they can be "heroes of social justice" within Southroyd.
