Norfolk Reading Project

Share this story!

Would you like to volunteer and make a difference? Many children leave school unable to read, YOU can help put that right.

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

We do this by providing trained volunteers to support children’s reading on a one-to-one basis within Primary Schools. This is completely free of charge for schools.

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

Our charity was started in 2015 in response to increasing concern about reading standards across the county and the impact this has on future prospects. In the last few years we have trained over 200 volunteers and we are supporting more than 50 schools throughout the county.

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