Warwick Primary School in Wellingborough is one of the first schools in the country to have been accredited as a Story-Telling School, and is the first in Northamptonshire to earn the status.

Vice-principal Sandra Appleby said: “The basic idea is simple: learning to tell stories from memory is a great way to learn all sorts of essential skills.

“Being a Story-Telling School aids vocabulary building, brings literacy to life, improves confidence, helps develop a positive and creative learning environment and raises attainment.”
