The school in Ley Street, Ilford, has received 1,327 books and staff will be popping each student’s chosen books – up to three – through their letterbox.

The Big Reading Push initiative was launched by deputy head Debbie Emmanuel and assistant head Nicole Ranson to encourage every student to read for 20-30 minutes a day.

Inside each book there is a postcard on which pupils are asked to complete a book review and bring it back to school when it re-opens.

The school is also organising online book clubs and read-alongs with teachers.

All school departments will be involved in the initiative.

In addition every fortnight on a Friday it will be holding Drop Everything and Read Day, where online learning of different subjects will pause and the whole school will focus on reading.
