UK Literacy School of the Year.

UK Literacy School of the Year.

A primary school in Renfrewshire has become the first in Scotland to be named UK Literacy School of the Year.

St Anthony’s Primary School in Johnstone was chosen for the honour by the UK Literacy Association, which aims to raise literacy standards in schools across the nation.

It is among the schools to introduce the Renfrewshire Literacy Approach, a project between Renfrewshire Council and the University of Strathclyde, funded by the local authority and the Scottish Government.

Independent assessors from UKLA who visited the school, which has around 200 pupils, noted how every classroom has a wide range of books with comfortable reading areas, and how staff and pupils speak eloquently about the books they enjoy.

Children also have the opportunity to discuss books in Reading Cafes and can learn using laptops, digital cameras and tablets.
