Volunteer readers wanted for new Story Starters project
Ormiston Families and national charity Beanstalk have partnered up to host Story Starters in all of Ormiston Families’ nurseries.
Beanstalk charity works in primary schools and nurseries to help those children who have fallen behind in reading. 2017 saw 29% of children across England leaving primary school unable to read at the expected level.
Beanstalk recruits, trains and places volunteers in schools and nurseries to read one on one with children. The sessions are fun, interactive and encourage children to read for themselves.
If you would like to become a volunteer, start a new chapter in your life and help children excel in school, we need you.
We are always looking for new volunteers, so, if you can spare two afternoons or mornings a week, then please get in touch and become a Beanstalk Reading Helper at Ormiston Families’ nurseries.
