Reading & Number Partners
Do you have pupils who are struggling with their learning & in need of extra support to help raise attainment levels?
Ablaze’s Reading and Number partner programmes can help!
We have significant experience and expertise in managing volunteer led reading and number partner programmes for primary and secondary schools that support children with their reading and number skills. In 2018-19
Our Reading Partners’ Programme helps to raise the literacy levels of your under-performing pupils by giving them extra one-to-one reading opportunities with an Ablaze business volunteer.
Reading Partners encourages pupils to read more, read better and be more confident in their ability. Schools have reported that when a pupil’s confidence grows from their reading sessions with a business volunteer, their comprehension & ability to master literacy improves at a greater speed than it would without this additional support.
Impact and benefit for pupils
Improved reading skills
Enjoyment of reading and talking about books
Improved confidence in their abilities
Improved communication skills
Our Number Partners programme aims to increase the skills of pupils who are struggling with simple maths calculations. Volunteers support small groups of pupils by playing targeted number games. Children gain increased confidence & skills in their maths work and this informal support boosts their attitude towards maths generally.
