READ TO SUCCEED IN SCHOOL
All students are encouraged to independently select a wide range of reading material. Students in years 7- 9 are expected to have a reading book with them as part of their daily equipment and are required to set personal goals and keep a log of their reading progress. This is monitored by their English teacher.
Directed reading lessons as part of the English curriculum enable students to explore a variety of challenging texts and they are encouraged to improve their reading ability through our whole school focus on developing vocabulary.
READ TO SUCCEED REWARDS
All students in Years 7-9 take part in our ‘Read To Succeed’ rewards programme. Students are rewarded for their commitment to independent reading with either a Bronze, Silver or Gold ‘Read to Succeed’ point respectively as they achieve the reading goals set at each level. Points are awarded via Class Charts inline with our whole school rewards system.
The aim of the rewards programme is to provide extrinsic motivation to encourage all pupils to read for pleasure and improve their reading ability.
