Free reading book for every TKAT pupil in reception

Posted on: 20th Sep 2022

Our Trust and our primary schools were delighted at the beginning of term to give a free reading book to mark the start of their school journey to every child starting reception in a TKAT school this September. The fantastic book is 'How to Catch a Star' by the international best-selling children's author Oliver Jeffers.

We are really grateful to Renaissance Learning ( and Laburnum House ( whose extremely generous donation of over 1,500 books made this gift possible.

Renaissance's Accelerated Reader and Star Assessment products support all TKAT schools with our priority of developing reading. And we are looking forward to working further with Laburnum House to help our schools broaden their range of reading books.

One of our headteachers said, "We really appreciate this very thoughtful gift. It is such a great start for our youngest pupils. They were so excited with their book and couldn't wait to show it to their parents."

One of our parents fed back, "Just before my daughter fell asleep, she said 'I like my school so much. You chose the best school, thank you mummy.' "
