Congratulations to our wonderful reading champions on making the most progress in Autumn term, we are so proud of your achievements as part of the Hilary Ford award.
Hilary Ford was a volunteer who read with the children at Herringthorpe Junior School for over 20 years. She believed in hard work and that all children, if given the opportunity, could develop a love of reading. In recognition of her services to education, she was awarded a British Empire Medal by the Queen in the New Years Honours list 2018.
In partnership with her family, we would like her legacy to continue. Hilary’s family are working with Willow tree academy to allow this to happen and we can’t thank them enough for supporting all children across our four schools.
