What is Accelerated Reader (AR)?

Accelerated Reader is for all of our yea7 & 8 students. Readers are expected to do a minimum of 20 minutes at home

each day to make progress towards their half-term target. hen you successfully complete an online quiz, you

accumulate points and add to your total word count. By doing regular reading level testswe provide readers with ZPD

(Zone of Proximal Development) to help you find challenging books at a level that’s right for you.

Form Tutors will offer you encouragement over the coming months and the English Department and Library Team

currently monitor and advise students on progress.

Can parents and students keep track of progress?

Yes! Year 7 & 8 students and parents can sign up for automatic email updates and view your reading progress
