Reading for Careers

Language and literacy provide us with the building blocks not just for academic success, but for fulfilling careers and rewarding lives.’  (EEF, 2022)


Reading plays an essential role in helping our children and young people to prepare for their lives beyond LGS.  We therefore support our pupils from the very start of their reading journey to read for the future.  An important part of this involves reading to explore careers and lifestyle options.  From discussions around the Little Wandle astronaut to online searches for apprenticeships or college and university courses, we endeavour to link reading to the world beyond LGS.
