The offer, which saves a school £750 in total, is for a Reading Leaders course for 20 pupils, a box of fun and engaging reading
resources worth £400 and a place at the forthcoming 'Closing the Literacy Gap' conference. It's a brilliant opportunity to
invest in improving literacy provision at your school for a fraction of the usual cost.
The Reading Leaders scheme, which trains older pupils to be peer mentors and support younger pupils with reading, brings benefits for the children on both sides of the partnership,
improving their literacy and communication skills, confidence and self-esteem.
Reading Leaders training takes place at school over the course of a normal day. A professional trainer from Reading Matters would usually train a cohort of year 4 or 5 pupils with a free place for the member of staff acting as the school co-ordinator.
Training needs to take place this term, so don't delay! Contact Reading Matters on 01274 692219 or firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
“Reading Matters is an independent charity which is not run by Bradford Council. However BSO is being used to let our district’s schools know of the reduced offer available to them.”
