Reading is the foundation on which the rest of education is built. With this philosophy, we at The Priory Belvoir Academy are implementing various initiatives to enable students to access reading at all levels. These currently range from the introduction of an excellent catch up reading programme called Lexia, to specific reading lessons in English, to such things as simply encouraging reading out loud in all subjects.
We will shortly launch and embed the successful reading programme, Accelerated Reader, which is designed to create a culture where reading is embraced by all no matter what stage of their educational development they are at. Each student will always have a book in their bag that is age appropriate and of a genre they will enjoy - ready to read wherever, whenever.
To that end if you have any surplus books at home please feel free to donate them to the school library.
