Would you like to inspire a child to read?
Volunteers needed in an Oxfordshire primary school near you!
An ARCh reading helper visits a school twice a week spending half an hour each with three children. The school selects children who they believe will benefit from the additional help. The child may be struggling with reading, lack language skills or have little confidence. The volunteer talks to the child, reads and shares books and plays games supplied by ARCh.
