SEN Success Stories
Manor Leas Junior Academy, Hykeham Rd, Lincoln
Manor Leas Junior Academy is a large Junior (KS2 only) school in Lincoln. We aim to provide our pupils with an innovative curriculum which uses technology and real-life topics to engage pupils in their learning. We recently became a Master School, an award celebrating best practice best-practices in reading engagement. We are happy to share our experience of assessing pupil progress with other schools.
East Ravendale CE Primary School, Grimsby, South Humberside
Last year, East Ravendale needed to bring on a new reading approach. With the help of Accelerated Reader, the school brought about rapid reading progress.
Thorp Academy, Tyne and Wear
Accelerated Reader has improved engagement with reading and given staff the means they need to intervene and support those who are struggling. A positive reading culture has developed, and students are becoming increasingly independent with their reading.
King James's School, Knaresborough, North Yorkshire
Librarian Lisa Bryden had used Accelerated Reader at a previous school and knew that she wanted to implement the programme at her new school. Her past experience with AR has been repeated, with books flying off the shelves of the library and students gaining in confidence.
Kingsnorth Church of England Primary School, Kent
Reading has been put at the heart of Kingsnorth after an incoming head teacher brought his past experiences with Accelerated Reader to his new school. Students are now reading appropriate books, are enjoying reading, and are recognising their own progress.
Wennington Hall School, Lancashire
Accelerated Reader has been part of school like at Wennington Hall for a decade. A residential and day school for students with special educational needs, Wennington Hall has a strong reading culture and commitment to improving the literacy attainment of every student.
