Accelerated Reader

Part of the funding has been spent on purchasing the Accelerated Reader program. This will allow teachers to support students with their reading, guide students to reading material and target intervention for students who require it.

The program will support the Academy in developing reading which will impact achievement in all subjects across the curriculum.
