Data review Success Stories
Everest Community Academy, Basingstoke
Accelerated Reader has been in use at Everest since 2007, but since joining the Renaissance School Partnership programme in 2012 the academy has seen increased improvements in attainment. The additional training and support provided by a dedicated programme manager has led to an increased focus on student data and more effective intervention, impressing inspectors.
Firth Park Academy, Sheffield
By joining the Renaissance School Partnership programme, Firth Park has put Accelerated Reader at the centre of the English Department. While reading used to be an add-on, it is now firmly embedded in the curriculum and a top priority for the staff team.
Darlington School of Mathematics and Science, Co. Durham
A large number of students joining Darlington School of Mathematics and Science have reading ages well below their chronological ages. Accelerated Reader motivates them to practise reading, with the result that their reading levels have improved and they are more able to access the curriculum.
The Malling School, Kent
Students are reading for pleasure at the Malling School. Reading has been made part of the timetable, and students are using the library at all times of the day. A culture of reading has spread across the school, and reading levels are rising as a result.
New Rickstones Academy, Essex
The Renaissance School Partnership programme gave New Rickstones Academy focused support in the areas where it was most needed. The result was a growing culture of reading and purposeful use of data to improve teaching and learning.
Saint George's Church of England School, Kent
Subject teachers across Saint George's Church of England School are benefitting from the reading culture that has developed, as students can now read to a higher level and are more able to access the curriculum.
Friern Barnet School, North London
Many students joining Friern Barnet School have low reading ages and struggle to access the curriculum. Accelerated Reader has motivated them to read and helped to unlock their potential for learning across the school.
Kingsmead School, Middlesex
Engagement with reading at Kingsmead received a tangible boost when the school joined the RSP programme. Attitudes towards reading improved markedly year-on-year, as responses from the NLT's National Literacy Survey show.
Dover Christ Church Academy, Kent
Students in the APLUS mini-school at Dover Christ Church Academy receive additional support during the transition from primary to secondary education. Attitudes towards reading have been transformed since Accelerated Reader was introduced.
Bluecoat Academy, Nottingham
Reading age data was concerning staff at Bluecoat Academy. Since implementing Accelerated Reader, students have been catching up faster as they have been motivated to read and recognise their success in making progress.
