We are delighted to share with you that we have received a 'Good' rating following our Ofsted inspection in June 2023 and in February 2024 we had very successful SIAMS church inspection.


RWI-At Grampound Road we teach children to read as soon as they start in their first week in the reception class. We follow the Read Write Inc. programme of study and we teach reading everyday. After the first few weeks children are assessed and grouped accordingly. Every half term the children are assessed. Once the children have completed the RWI programme they move onto to the Accelerated Reading programme combined with our own Guided Reading programme where we teach reading skills. We also promote a love of reading through reading for pleasure. We are members of the Library service and we have fabulous topic book boxes every term which enables our children to have access to new and exciting books.
Accelerated Reader-At Grampound Road we follow a reading programme called Accelerated Reader. 
This is a brief summary, but I have also attached a parent guide which is really helpful.
Accelerated Reader is a reading programme that supports children with independent reading. The children take a star test which gives them a reading level range. The children go to the library and choose a book from the beginning of that range. They read the book and take an online quiz. If they score 100%, the book is not challenging and they move onto a more difficult book. Ideally a score of 85% is what we are aiming for. The star test is very individual, it responds to the answers the children give, for example if they get the answers correct the difficulty level is increased. So the tests are important, if a child rushes the test it will give a false book level. The children will learn how to take the tests and in some cases they will be re-tested to ensure they are on the correct level. Sometimes the books seem too easy, but the quiz results will inform the teachers and more challenging books will be sought.  Accelerated Reader Book finder
The children will also get certificates and points as they successfully increase the level of difficulty.
I hope the parent guide is useful, but if you have any questions please make an appointment to meet Miss Kennedy, Miss Eastham or the class teacher.
