Reading for Pleasure
At CLPE we work to emphasise the importance of books and literature in enabling children to become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers and writers, with all the benefits this brings. The Power of Reading is our flagship project which is underpinned and based on our research and experience.
All CLPE training is designed to help you develop practical approaches to literacy learning that inspire a love of reading and writing for all children. Teachers attending our training receive strategies and resources that can be put into immediate practise and support EYFS 2014 and NC 2014.

The project has had a huge impact in the EYFS through use of the books and teaching sequences. It has been instrumental in giving more confidence and inspiration to our teachers.

CLPE training has had a transformational effect on the engagement of our children in reading and writing.
Children’s writing has developed immensely and progress has accelerated. Our children now love reading and approach writing bursting with ideas and confidence.
