This course equips teachers and teaching assistants but also parent support advisers and extended schools co-ordinators to run successful Reading Café © sessions in individual schools. Reading Cafés © are used from Foundation Stage to Year 5. In the sessions, through a variety of enjoyable, informal learning activities as well as advice from school staff on how to develop and extend their child’s reading skills, all parents/carers learn how to support their child’s reading. Reading Cafés © are helping children achieve better than expected progress in reading as parents are complementing at home what their children are learning at school. They are also proving to be an effective means to develop the school/home partnership.
