At Diamond Academy we champion the importance of reading. As a school we encourage members of the community to volunteer at Diamond Academy (subject to DBS checks) to read with our pupils, helping them to develop a natural love of reading and support their academic progress.

Our pupils get to learn about and enjoy literature and poetry, with our curriculum being focused on high-quality literary texts. We have carefully planned our sequence of core texts to ensure our pupils encounter a range of themes and narrative perspectives as well as cultural and historical contexts.
