About Read for My School

The competition is designed to:

• Challenge readers to read as much as they can; read different types of books and explore new and unfamiliar genres and authors; choose their own books and get talking to others about what they’ve read.

• Carry on reading. Keep pupils reading long after the competition ends and encourage them, families, teachers and schools to use BookTrust’s website, resources and range of programmes to carry on enjoying books and reading for pleasure.

The competitive element of the programme is designed to:

• be fun and motivate children of all abilities, with a variety of interests, to read for pleasure.

• give children the opportunity to read their way to rewards for themselves and their schools.

The Prizes

The competition element of Read for My School is split into two areas:

• Prizes for schools
