Our school is now using Oxford Reading Buddy as the main way to read at home and school. We know that there are performance issues with delayed loading of books and being unable to always log on; please persevere as we are in constant communication with their team to improve our experience.


Regarding, home reading of the colour banded texts we would ask that you use Oxford Reading Buddy with the same daily regularity as previously expected. In the same way we used the reading records in previous years, we are able to monitor children reading at home and follow their progress and understanding through the texts on Oxford Reading Buddy. Any reading outside Oxford Reading Buddy books is warmly supported and encouraged; these can be logged onto their record online to help their teacher to see what they are reading.


For any school specific support needed please contact:, otherwise contact


More information about Oxford Reading Buddy:

This is a digital reading service to support children’s reading development at home as well as at school.


Oxford Reading Buddy contains hundreds of digital books and book-quizzes all matched to each child’s reading ability. Children can earn badges for good reading behaviours, be coached in their understanding by their personal ‘Reading Buddy’, take quizzes and record all the reading they do. Everything is captured so that your child’s teacher can see how they’re getting on.


Please log in to Oxford Reading Buddy when your child brings home their sign-in card and have a look around. Do encourage your child to use it regularly and discuss what they are reading with them. You might be interested in watching them reading one or two of the Coaching eBooks because Reading Buddy is a good model of how to support and encourage children’s comprehension skills as they read.


When your child is taking a quiz, please try to provide a quiet workspace for them, but resist the temptation to help them because their answers will help your child’s teacher understand their needs.


If you don’t have a tablet or PC at home, the service works on smartphone as well.
