Through Accelerated Reader lessons the Year 7 and 8 students at King Ecgbert School are encouraged and supported in the development of that most essential skill – reading.
Each pupil spends an hour a week in the library and is given personalised guidance to help them find the books that will enthuse and inspire them. Targets are set which provide motivation and focus. All pupils are periodically monitored to ensure good progress is made, and there is regular communication between school and home to provide updates and advice.
Ultimately, we aim at the very least to rapidly progress out student’s reading ability and hopefully engender in them a lifelong love and respect for reading and the written word.
