The Reading Support Conference is being delivered on Monday March 17th and Monday March 24th. Edge Hill University is holding the conference for School Head Teachers and Senior Managers. I am proud to announce that I'll be delivering a workshop for Better Reading Support Partners as the Reading Support National Adviser. The conference charge is £100+VAT for each delegate. This will be an opportunity for teaching professionals to: 

 - hear from national experts and leading pracitioners 
 - reflect upon how to maximise the impact of reading interventions in your school
 - find out about the suite of Reading Support interventions
 - network and share best practice with colleagues

Better Reading Support Partners

Better Reading Support Partners is a ‘light touch’ reading intervention for children in Years 1 to 10 who have fallen behind at reading. A Better Reading Support Partner, normally a teaching assistant or a volunteer, supports children individually, three times a week. The child reads three books in a session and the Partner prompts and supports them and discusses the books with them. The Partner has 2 days of training and is supported by a link teacher. 

In 2013, children achieved an average Reading Age gain of 11 months after only 2 months of BRSP support. Their comprehension ages rose by 10 months. 

Better Reading Support Partners was developed by Reading Support in partnership with Bradford Metropolitan District Council. It has updated and replaced Bradford’s former Better Reading Partnership.
