Schoolreaders Appeal




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 Leicestershire to carry out this important role.


Reading time for many children at home and at school is often insufficient and according to Government statistics, one in four children are now leaving primary school unable to read to the expected standard. This can have a lifelong consequence.

 

Schoolreaders is flexible and aims to match your availability to an appropriate, local school.  No qualifications are necessary, just a good command of spoken and written English and a commitment of one year is requested.


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.

or call 01234 924111 for further information.
