Do you have an hour or two each week to support our children to develop a love of reading? At Bethersden Primary School we want to prepare our children for life and one of the best ways we can do that is to develop fluent and confident readers. Some of our children do not get the chance to practise reading regularly to adults at home and whilst we try our best as professionals to hear them read I am sure you can imagine this is not always possible. We are looking for adults who would be happy to hear you children read regularly. Our current volunteers tell us that they enjoy hearing the children read as much as the children enjoy reading to their volunteer. Full training will be given and we would love to have an army or volunteers to support our children. If you would like further information please contact Helen Rowson, School Administrator, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have. As this role is working with children we would need to carry out some safeguarding checks befoe you could join our team but we can explain those to you when you call.
