Accelerated Reader

At Chesswood, we use Accelerated Reader to assess and promote reading. This has proved to be a very valuable tool in

  • engaging children with reading
  • assessing children's progress
  • ensuring children access reading material at an appropriately challenging level

To support your child at home, it is important to know the level they should be reading at. This is updated termly on your child's 'detailed' report and will be a numerical figure giving a 'lower reading range' and 'upper reading range'. All books in the school library are labelled with the book level on the spine.
