CLS Case Study

Personalised planning and assessment ignites student growth – Case Study

They have been using Renaissance Complete Literacy Solution to support their pupils literacy growth and enhance numeracy skills across the school, and to inform planning and progression for teachers.

Read what schools are saying about our solutions

Renaissance solutions have impacted our reading culture. We have a word millionaire board celebrating those who have achieved certificates, and students are continually aware of their reading age and ZPD. Hence, they can select appropriate books. The overall impact has been very positive.

Star Reading is invaluable in ensuring students read appropriately without becoming overwhelmed by texts that are too dense or underachieving by reading texts with too low a vocabulary load.

I really appreciate the way Accelerated Reader enables me to be fully involved with the students’ reading – I know exactly what they are reading, how much progress they are making and how I can support them most effectively.

Not just does our secondary school use Star tests, but our mission teams also use the Star test as one of the indicators for those applicants who would like to join Independent School Foundation Academy. We have been using star tests for the admission purposes for nearly maybe 10 years.

Renaissance solutions have been particularly helpful in encouraging the children to read for pleasure, there has been a true sense of reading enjoyment amongst students. The selection of books available in myON cover a wide range of topics and themes that can appeal to all kinds of children whatever their interests.

I absolutely would recommend Accelerated Reader and Star Reading. It makes promoting reading and measuring progress much more tangible, making it easier to identify students who are not reading.
