Accelerated Reader Scheme

What is the Accelerated Reader Scheme?
Accelerated Reader is a system used in increasing numbers of schools in the UK and around the world to promote children’s reading skills and enjoyment. Children are assessed to determine their reading ability, and can then choose from a range of recommended titles at their reading level. Once they have finished a book, they complete a simple quiz to check that they have read and understood it, and then are given a further list of recommended titles to choose from.

At Bury, children move onto the Accelerated Reading Scheme when they have completed the school Reading Scheme. Children are tested to assess their book level and are set half termly targets.

Quizzing takes place during school hours. Parents can follow their child's progress by logging into the AR site. Log in details are provided to parents when their child starts on the scheme.
