As part of Oldbury Academy’s reading initiative we are trying to encourage the children to read for at least 20 minutes a day.  Part of this success will be encouraging pupils to develop a love of reading in their own comfortable surroundings.  Therefore, can we ask that you encourage your son/daughter to read their book for at least 20 minutes a day, either independently or with someone.

Our aim at Oldbury Academy is to ensure all our pupils become engaged readers. This means pupils developing a love a reading for pleasure, not simply reading because they are told to. By pupils becoming lifelong readers it will ensure academic success that in turn will provide a secure future for your son or daughter.
