Oxford Reading Buddy

Oxford Reading Buddy is a digital reading service which our children access to develop comprehension and encourage a love of reading. It matches pupils with books at the right level and tracks performance across hundreds of Oxford’s print and digital books through expertly written comprehension quizzes.

It provides a motivating and friendly virtual environment where students have their own Reading Buddy to coach comprehension skills and where they will earn badges for working well.
