  • Children's book groups to increase enthusiasm for quality literature and understanding of how to share this in the classroom
  • A subscription to a resource-packed website hosting over 200 teaching sequences for EYFS to KS2, explanations of our teaching approaches and over 1500 examples of good practice
  • An introduction to CLPE Reading and Writing Scales to help teachers strengthen formative assessment, understand the journey toward becoming literate and support progress for every child

“The children have experienced and enjoyed a range of high quality texts. We have been able to explore some difficult and abstract concepts through book talk. Teachers are much more confident about the texts they're using.”

Year 5 teacher, George White Junior School, Norwich PoR project 2017-18

“Everybody in my class is enjoying and responding to the texts. It is a totally inclusive way of teaching English. The whole school now uses PoR to teach English."
