Accelerated Reader

Our library is pleased to be part of the Accelerated Reader program. This system levels a book based on the ATOS difficulty level, which will determine a book’s difficulty based on vocabulary, sentence length and average word count. All KS3 pupils complete a STAR reading test at the start of the year, which gives them their ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development). Pupils then choose a suitable book based on their ZPD and complete a quiz once they have finished work to check understanding. Each quiz that the pupil completes and passes will get house points for their house. 

Parents can monitor their child’s reading progress by clicking here and entering their child's Accelerated Reader logins that they use in school.
