Aim: To provide regular and frequent (twice a week) reading support for children by an interested and well trained volunteer adult who has been trained using the same principles as Better Reading Partnership.
Selection criteria: The children are chosen by the class teachers, in conjunction with the Literacy lead, usually those children that are reading at a level just below where they should or could be, or children who appear to have plateaued in their reading levels. Often children who do not read or supported particularly often at home are targeted
Measuring impact: Reading progress is tracked through usual measures such as class teacher assessment of reading level, also the class teacher may notice an increased level of enthusiasm and confidence in reading ability.
The targeted readers are reviewed every half term.
