I have therefore been working with the Bishop of Ely, local schools and the local press as to how we can raise the profile of literacy, in order to deliver the benefits that a love of reading instills. Many children fail to make progress during the summer holiday, when they are out of school. So, together with the Reading Agency, I am launching a community initiative to give every Year 4 pupil in our thirty-four primary schools their own book to cherish and read over the summer, together with a library membership slip, enabling them to complete the Reading Agencys Summer Reading Challenge. Their parents can also complete the Reading Ahead challenge, which involves reading a number of short books over the summer, qualifying them for a prize. The aim of the community initiative is to build on what many people do at Christmas, when they buy an extra present for those who may not be visited by Father Christmas. On this occasion, we are encouraging those buying a book for their summer holidays, even if not planning to go away, to buy an extra childrens book, so that we can give all children, without means testing, a new book.</p><p>So what do we want from you? We would like you to visit my website below, pick a book from the list, purchase it and deliver it to my office (either set it as the delivery address or pop in with the book). You can even pick which school will receive your donation; simply enter my office as a delivery address, but replace my name with the school name. For adults, local libraries will also be running the Reading Ahead challenge, which they can complete alongside their children and involves reading six short books and magazines, which will help those who have got out the habit of reading, or simply do not have time to read.I hope that constituents will join the Bishop of Ely, local head teachers and above all students, to enable some children to own their very first book and, for others, the excitement of having something new to read over the summer. 1,215 books will allow us to give every child in Year 4 a new book and, should we receive more, we will be able to roll it out to further year groups. For those who wish to take part, please see my website for further details, the list of books we wish to be donated and where to deliver your donations</p></li><li><p> June 2016 | D I S C O V E R I N G March 7</p><p>4 Hill View Ind Est.

Est, Benwick Road, Whittlesey, PE7 2HD</p><p> REPORT: Much Better but Work Still to be DoneBurrowmoor Primary School has received encouraging feedback from Ofsted following a recent visit. Inspectors reported that leaders and managers are taking effective action towards the removal of special measures. Teaching at Burrowmoor was praised in the report, with inspectors stating that teachers were demonstrating a resilient determination to improve, and teaching and the use of assessment in the early years has strengthened. Inspectors also noted the positive attitudes of the schools considerate children, stating that they try hard to complete their work and are eager to do well.</p><p>Interim Headteacher, Anne McCarthy, was also praised in the report, with inspectors stating that she had strengthened leadership considerably and led important changes to the culture of the school. Mrs McCarthy said: I am pleased that the schools hard work and commitment to improve has been recognised in the report. The school community are determined to improve the school further and journey towards being outstanding.</p><p>Burrowmoor is an Active Learning Trust school, and Trust CEO, Gary Peile, praised the senior leadership team at the school. I am pleased that the inspection letter highlights the improvements at Burrowmoor and I want to thank Anne [McCarthy], Jason [Wing] (executive head) and the team for taking forward the changes highlighted by Her Majestys Inspector. The Trust and the school know there remains work to do and will continue to support all staff to ensure pupils get the very best opportunities in their time at Burrowmoor. </p><p>Burrowmoor was entered into special measure following an Ofsted inspection in March 2015.</p><p>DRAGON HUNT COMPETITION WINNER </p><p>ALFIE &amp; MAX GARDNER </p><p>MEDICAL DETECTION DOGSMedical Detection Dogs is a charity that trains dogs to detect cancer, and also helps people who have potentially life-threatening illnesses to lead normal lives. </p><p>The charity organises Canter for a Cure, a sponsored horse ride (and very much a fun day out) to raise money for its work in cancer detection, featuring riders and their horses bedecked in pink. Up until now, this event has only been held at an Equestrian Centre close to the charitys training centre at Milton Keynes. The charity had the idea of holding similar events elsewhere, to relieve the oversubscribed Milton Keynes event, and enable more people to take part. Following a chance discussion with an employee at Burghley House, Stamford, the charity was delighted to be invited to hold their sponsored ride there, and registration is now open.</p><p>Canter for a Cure at Burghley will take place on Sunday July 17th, comprising a six-mile sponsored ride, beginning at 10am. Numbers are limited, so early registration is advised. The charity would welcome volunteers to help out on the day, or to assist in its general work by fostering puppies in training. More information on the event, as well as the work of the charity, can be found at</p></li><li><p>10 D I S C O V E R I N G March | June 2016 </p><p> | Community news</p><p> | T: 01733 325 5661A-1B Mancetter Square, Lincoln Road, Werrington, Peterborough PE4 6BX </p><p>(FREE CUSTOMER PARKING)Mon-Sat 10am to 5pm.
