Read for My School is a national schools reading competition that promotes reading for pleasure by challenging pupils to read as many books as possible in three months. Throughout the competition there are prizes and awards to be won for schools and pupils taking part.
Pupils are encouraged to read as many and as wide a range of books as they can in the three months of the competition. This website includes a library of over 100 online books to choose from and all participants can access these freely throughout the competition. Books to suit the full range of reading abilities are available, including material for pupils with SEN. The books are organised in eight genre-categories and pupils are encouraged to aim to read books from a range of categories. Pupils may also choose to read any book of their choice offline and then log what they have read via their Read for My School account. Other key features of the programme include:
Teachers can nominate pupils to win reading awards. Here are the four awards categories:
