The new reading incentive??at Freebrough, Read to Achieve, was launched last term and we have two students??who have completed their reading passports so far. The scheme tries to encourage students to read ten books written by authors that are from a set reading list. There are three levels of passport to challenge students and the ongoing scheme??allows all students to participate.
