Can you spare an hour or two a week to listen to children read in a local primary school? Schoolreaders has now launched in Dorset and is looking for volunteers to carry out this important role.
Reading time for many children at home and at school is often insufficient and one in four children are now leaving primary school unable to read to the required standard. No qualifications are necessary, just a good command of spoken and written English.
Schoolreaders is flexible and will match your availability to an appropriate, local school. Visit schoolreaders.org or call 01234 924111 for more information.
