Reading is a high priority at St Anne’s. All students are encouraged to read for pleasure through various activities including Drop Everything and Read days, form time activities and book recommendations from peers.

Throughout the curriculum, students are provided with opportunities to read challenging texts related to topics and literacy is at the heart of teaching and learning to develop students’ language skills in reading, writing and oracy.

All KS3 students are required to have a reading book in school as part of their basic kit. Form time is used for reading whole class texts as well as monitoring students’ individual reading progress.

We robustly assess and record, on a termly basis, all student reading ages using STAR reading tests on Accelerated Reader. Assessment informed reading interventions are put in place to provide a bespoke and targeted school-wide reading and literacy programme.

The library is open to all students during social times and after school, to use the computers, get support with homework or to use as a quiet space for reading.

The library offers a diverse range of books for all ages and reading abilities, including book on our Accelerated Reader programme. Students are able to see their reading progress by completing quizzes on their Accelerated Reader books and this is also monitored by form tutors.

The library is used as part of the English curriculum for KS3; once a fortnight, all classes have a library lesson which is used to read and discuss a class novel, encouraging and promoting reading for pleasure and improving reading skills.

We have a team of student librarians who volunteer to support during social times and they also review and promote books to recommend to students.
