The importance of reading cannot be understated, which is why Bodmin College has invested and implemented the reading programme, Accelerated Reader. This software is specifically designed to assist all pupils of all abilities to learn to read and read to learn – even when English is a second language.
Our trained staff use the Accelerated Reader programme to support personalised reading to promote reading for pleasure and encourage pupils to read more widely. It helps us motivate pupils of all abilities to read and progress through reading suitably challenging books.
Using this alongside other strategies we aim to raise literacy standards amongst all pupils and to develop a lifelong love of reading.
