Accelerated Reader 

Your child uses a software program called Accelerated Reader at school, the purpose of which is to motivate pupils to read whilst keeping track of how they are progressing. This program has a special feature called ‘Renaissance Home Connect’, which you and your child can access outside of school. Renaissance Home Connect is fun and easy to use.  It allows the teacher, you, and your child to share information about their progress in Accelerated Reader.

Use the link below to login. Your child should know their user name and password.
