The Norfolk Reading Project - Reading Support Volunteers

We are a new local charity whose aim is to support teachers in improving literacy standards across Norfolk.

We do this by providing volunteers to hear children read on a one-to-one basis within Primary Schools.

Our volunteers are given an understanding of the importance of phonics in leaning to read, in line with the emphasis placed on this in the New National Curriculum 2014. This focus on phonics is particularly welcomed by teachers as it supports rather than conflicts with their class teaching.

Our charity was started in response to increasing concern about reading standards across the county and the impact this has on future prospects. Inspired by the Realaction charity in London we developed the idea of providing trained volunteers to support the work of teachers in schools.

We are a non-affiliated organisation whose sole aim is to improve children's reading skills and lifetime opportunities.
