Volunteer to listen to children read in local primary schools
Posted for School Readers
We are looking for volunteers to read with children in local primary schools.
Schoolreaders is a charity who improve children's life chances by providing volunteers, for free, to give one-on-one reading practice to children in primary schools.
A large proportion of children leaving primary school are unable to read to the expected standard. One of the reasons is that children are not receiving enough one-on-one reading practice. Schoolreaders helps address this by providing volunteers to listen to children read in primary schools.
We recruit volunteers to go into primary schools. Volunteers are carefully matched to the best local school for them. This is a completely free service to both schools and volunteers.
Visit www.schoolreaders.org to complete an application form or telephone 01234 924 111.
Your postcode will allow Schoolreaders to try and match you up with a primary school near to where you live.
No qualifications are necessary to be a volunteer, just a good command of English and a couple of spare hours during the school day each week of the school year.
