Accelerated Reader

Year 7 have now completed their STAR Reading Assessments, this sets up a programme called Accelerated Reader, where students are rewarded for the books that they have read. All they have to do is read a book, log on to the AR website and complete the quiz. If they pass the quiz (80% or above) they are rewarded with the number of words in that book. Their totals will then transfer to leader boards in their English classrooms and form rooms. In the past this has led to prizes such as a trip to Old Trafford, a summer garden party and a theatre trip to Birmingham. This has been a very successful scheme over the last two years and has contributed to students greatly improving their Reading Age, which then has a positive effect across the curriculum.

The web address is, and if you are logging on via the AR app (downloadable from the App Store) you will also need to enter this code: MSSFC-18AI.

Your child's username in most cases is their first initial followed by the first 4 letters of their

surname (e.g. John Smith would be jsmit). Occasionally usernames are slightly different and your child will know if this is the case. All passwords are abc.

Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the website, and keep checking the relevant section of If you have any questions don't hesitate to get in touch with me

Good luck!
