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 pupils take part in a three tiered awards programme designed to engage readers of all abilities. All students are provided with an awards passport and receive a Bronze, Silver and Gold award respectively as they achieve the reading goals set at each level.
The aim of the rewards programme is to provide extrinsic motivation to encourage all pupils to read for pleasure and improve their reading ability. Students will be able to choose from a selection of rewards as they complete each stage of their awards passport.
