Schoolreaders – a model for improving literacy in Primary Schools
Thursday 8 February, 4pm (45 minute webinar)
1 in 4 primary school children in England fail to reach the expected standard of reading by the age of 11. This leaves them unable to access their secondary education fully, which will have life long consequences.
In this teachers’ webinar, Caroline Dowson will share the motivation that led to the creation of Schoolreaders in 2013 and how the model works to improve literacy in Primary Schools.
Discover how your school could benefit from their service to recruit, place and support volunteers to go to local primary schools and provide free, weekly, one-to-one reading support for children, prioritising those most disadvantaged.
This webinar is specifically for teachers and educators across the UK and will include a presentation and live Q&A session with Caroline.
