We are very lucky to have a dedicated team of Reading Ambassadors whose passion and love for reading is promoted across our school. Their role encompasses various responsibilities aimed at encouraging a positive reading culture within our community. As Reading Ambassadors, they wish to emphasise the enjoyment and personal growth that reading inspires for all ages.
As part of their role, Reading Ambassadors are responsible for introducing and recommending new titles in our library to the children of Horsenden. Additionally, they share captivating stories with classes, encouraging pupils to explore everything that books can offer. These thoughtful selections cater to the diverse interests and reading levels in our school, ensuring that every child finds a book that leads them on an exciting journey.
Rights of a Reader
We all have rights, even as a reader! The Reading Ambassadors believe that these are the most important rights for the readers at Horsenden Primary School: The right not to finish a book.
1. The right not to finish a book.
2. The right to read anything.
3. The right to read a book again.
4. The right to read aloud.
5. The right to read anywhere.

Reading in Class
As part of the Reading Ambassadors' responsibilities, they have been assigned to classes to read a story. Here are a few photographs of this happening in action.
Reading Ambassador Display Board:
Our new display board, located just outside of the main building library, is a place where our Reading Ambassadors can recommend and share what they're currently reading. As a group, they have chosen five rights as a reader which is also proudly displayed on the board.
