Testimonials Schools

The books on the platform are really good quality and the illustrations are very engaging.

Sian Tranter, Siddington Primary School, Assistant Headteacher

We started using Pickatale as a pilot with our Year 1 children in 2020-2021 and it was so successful that we rolled it out to the whole school this academic year.

I use Pickatale purely for reading for pleasure as we still send reading corner books and reading scheme books home every day. It’s a fantastic way of demonstrating reading for pleasure.

Jane Day, Headteacher of Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School, Croydon

I love the Sustainable Development Goal books, we do a whole curriculum based on the SDGs.

Nikki McGee, Reading Lead, Safa British School, Dubai
