"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free."
At Bishop Young Academy, our literacy focus is at the heart of our whole curriculum.
Our aim is to develop students who:
Our curriculum for years 7, 8 and 9 embeds reading and comprehension through the use of Star Reading and Accelerated Reader. Students actively engage with texts that have been identified for their reading ability then complete quizzes to test their comprehension.
How can you help your child?
All students should have a reading book as part of their daily equipment.
Word of the Week
Each week, the academy introduces a new word to all students. Discuss these with your child to encourage them to share their ever-developing vocabulary bank.
