Oxford Reading Buddy

We have upgraded our subscription from the Oxford eBooks Library to the new Oxford Reading Buddy (ORB).

Oxford Reading Buddy is a digital reading service to support children’s enjoyment of reading and their reading development at home as well as at school.


Reading and sharing stories can support our pupils to get to know sounds, words and language, and develop early literacy skills.  It can support them to learn to value books and stories, sparking their imagination and stimulate their curiosity. Oxford Reading Buddy contains hundreds of digital books for all levels of reader, including non-readers and emerging readers, where parents can share the stories with their child/children. 


It also contains book-quizzes which are matched to each child’s reading ability to support their comprehension skills. Each pupil has their own unique login to access the site.  They can earn badges for good reading behaviours, be coached in their understanding by their chosen ‘Reading Buddy’, take quizzes and record all the reading they do. Everything is captured so that teachers can see how they’re getting on.


Oxford Reading Buddy can be accessed on ipads, tablets, PCs and Smartphones.
