February 2018 sees the launch of The National Literacy Trust Hub in Swindon, branded as Swindon Stories, a new project to promote reading and boost literacy throughout the city. As part of the Hub’s activities, Swindon schools are taking part in exciting new research being carried out by the National Literacy Trust, exploring literacy from the point of view of children and young people.
The online survey for 9 to 18 year-olds explores children and young people’s reading and writing behaviour. Schools taking part in the research receive a report outlining the key findings for their school, providing a valuable insight into pupils’ reading and writing enjoyment, attitudes and confidence. This can be used to review current literacy provision, inform policy and as evidence for inspections.
If you are 9 to 18 years old and want to part in this survey please click on our school specific link:
All surveys need to be completed online by Friday 9 March 2018. Thank you for taking part.

Best wishes - all at Grange Federation 



Comments from Peter Nathan - Head of Education

Peter Nathan, Head of Education, recently visited the Infant school and said he was "delighted to be invited to the Christmas nativity at Grange Infant school. The children’s performances were excellent and it really brought home the spirit of Christmas. It was also great to see so many parents there enjoying the show and also having prepared such wonderful costumes. Thanks to all the staff who put so much effort into the organisation of the event and of course to all the children who sang and learnt their lines so well. It was a real pleasure to be there".
