Many of the pupils who arrive at the Braybrook Centre are below their expected reading age. To help pupils catch up we use Accelerated Reader for all pupils.
Accelerated Reader gives teachers the information they need to monitor students’ reading practice and make informed decisions to guide their future learning.
A comprehensive set of reports reveals how much a student has been reading, at what level of complexity, and how well they have understood what they have read. Vocabulary growth and literacy skills are also measured, giving teachers insight into how well students have responded to reading schemes and class instruction.
Literacy / Numeracy Interventions
All pupils at the Braybrook Centre complete a baseline assessment which is used, along with prior assessments data and Key Stage 2 validated data is used to set individual targets. If any pupil is below their age related expectation for literacy or numeracy then they receive one to one interventions once or twice a week in addition to their curriculum lessons.
