Schoolreaders – Volunteers needed to listen to children read in local primary schools.

Can you spare an hour or two a week to listen to children read in a local primary school?  Schoolreaders is looking for more volunteers in the area to carry out this important role.

Reading time for many children at home and at school is often insufficient and one in four children are now leaving primary school unable to read to the required standard.  This can have a lifelong consequence.  No qualifications are necessary, just a good command of spoken and written English.

Schoolreaders is flexible and will match your availability to an appropriate, local school.  Our volunteers find the scheme incredibly rewarding, knowing that a few hours helping a child learn to read each week can have such a great impact on their life chances.

Please visit the website to join or call 01234 924111 for further information.
