Applications for Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils 22/23 now open

Written by Maisie Jeynes, 14th June 2022

The Reader is delighted to be working with Cheltenham Festivals in delivering the Festivals’ network of teacher book groups in the North West, for the third year in a row. 

 

Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils is a Cheltenham Festivals programme delivered in partnership with like-minded organisations across the UK including Books Council of Wales, Bradford Literature Festival, Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), English and Media Centre, National Centre for Writing, National Literacy Trust, KEAP (The Writers’ Block), Peters, Seven Stories the National Centre for Children's Books, The Reader, The Story Museum and Wigtown Festival Company. 

Set up in 2016, the national network of teachers reading groups aims to inspire reading for pleasure because research shows that children who read for pleasure experience high levels of well-being, engage in learning and are successful in life. 

The Reader will be hosting a primary RTRP programme which is open to all Key Stage 2 teachers. As the selected novels are most appropriate for Year 5/6 pupils, priority is given to teachers of these year groups. To include as many schools as possible, places are limited to two teachers per school. 

The Reader will also be hosting a secondary RTRP programme which is open to all Key Stage 3 English teachers. To include as many schools as possible, places are limited to two teachers per school, this may include one teacher and one librarian. 

All sessions will be led by members of our expert teaching team at The Reader. The group is free to attend, and the shared resources are distributed throughout the year along with two copies of each of the five titles. 

Applications for the next academic year are now open - find out more.
