Coram Beanstalk Reading helpers

Suitable for -

Opportunity Description

The role of a reading helper places you in the heart of primary school life. You’ll be leading
reading sessions that bring a positive reading experience to children outside of the classroom.

Children will benefit from someone giving them one-to-one attention, showing them how much
fun reading can be and the purpose reading has in their lives.

You will build a positive learning relationship with individual children aged 4-11, maintaining a
regular weekly commitment. This consistency will build confidence, improve their engagement
with reading and allow their reading skills to rocket!

How it works
You will need to:
- Attend school weekly in the afternoon session(s) during which you’ll see the same children
each week
- Independently lead your sessions; you’ll have access to our brilliant books, online portal and
will quickly get into the swing of what works well for each child
- Liaise with school staff and our team as required




No specific qualifications are required. All volunteers are subject to safer recruitment checks (DBS) All volunteers attend online training sessions before being placed in a school.
