Our vision is that every child should learn to read well.
There has never been a more important time for our work.
What we do
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.
Schoolreaders recruits, places and supports volunteers to go to local primary schools and provide free, weekly, one-to-one reading support for children, prioritising those most disadvantaged.
Update for volunteers and schools
We welcome new partner schools to join our FREE scheme especially if you have many pupils who require extra reading support. Sign up today!
"I wanted to volunteer in a primary school where the children aren’t reading well or don’t have stories read to them when they go home at night."
