Reading changes lives. We believe at Auriol that we have a responsibility to create readers for life and inspire the children through the use of high quality texts. The investment in our beautiful library gives all pupils access to a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts and the experience of choosing a book they really want to read.
Using the Accelerated Reader programme we ensure that pupils not only receive the correct level of challenge but also the freedom to choose and develop a love of reading. Once your child has joined Auriol they will be given their own range of book numbers (a ZPD) to choose from. All our books in the library are part of the ZPD system, but this can be supplemented with choices from home using the link below.
Leaders believe firmly that pupils’ reading skills lie at the heart of learning in almost all subjects. The school has developed high-quality reading provision. Pupils leave the school with the skills that they need. They fully understand the detail of what they are reading. They become familiar with the work of many authors. This supports and inspires them to develop their own writing style.
