How can I help my child become a better reader?
Performance improves with practice. Encourage your child to read at home and you can help record progress in the child’s Reading Log. Create a culture of reading in your household by reading with your child, visiting the library, letting your child see you read and discussing books that each of you has read. When reading together, stop and ask questions to check that your child understands what they have read. Reading with your child, no matter how old they are, is very important for their development.
The Library provides an extensive range of books and resources to support the curricular, research and personal reading needs of the students and the staff at Stanground Academy.
We try to encourage the use of all our resources and hope that in doing so we will help students to gain an enjoyment of books and reading in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
We have study space for 60 students and have 12 computers that are networked and have internet access. The facilities are available for students to use during break, lunch time and after school and for teachers to book for class use during the school day. Sixth form students use our facilities during their study periods.
We have a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books suitable for all abilities, these are both for pleasure and also to support students with their school work. Project boxes are also available for teachers to support learning within the classroom.
The Library is open on school days from 8.30am to 4.30pm Monday -Thursday and 8.30am to 4.00pm on Fridays, Homework Club is held every day from 3.00pm.
The academy is always looking for volunteers. If you have time in the day and would like to volunteer to read with our students, please contact the Principal's PA at the Academy: firstname.lastname@example.org.
