young reading programme

A reading programme which partners students with their younger peers is being rolled out to secondary schools across England to help improve reading skills, confidence and enjoyment. National reading charity Beanstalk is aiming to train more than 3,500 students across the country to become Reading Leaders by the end of the next academic year. The Reading Leaders programme trains students in Years Nine and above to support and encourage younger pupils who are at serious risk of falling behind with their reading.
