Accelerated Reading


We started using Accelerated Reader in July 2017 as a result of a recommendation from another school. Garland had seen good results in reading for the most confident pupils, but insufficient progress for those who did not read regularly at home.

On introducing the programme, the enthusiasm from pupils was palpable and is still very much the case. The children enjoy the sense of success they get from reading regularly and scoring points for their quiz questions. We recognise their achievements each week by issuing certificates for the highest number of points per class, the highest word count, and those who have achieved 250,000 words, 500,000 words and 1 million words.

The impact of introducing the scheme has been increased engagement with reading for all pupil groups, including those who had previously struggled. The competitive element certainly helps with this!

We are now one of the top 10% users of Accelerated Reader in the country and have been asked to become a Champion School for them - you will be able to see us on their website!
