The Power of Reading and Power of Reading in the Early Years from CLPE are proven to raise children's literacy achievement. Established for 13 years, over 4500 teachers have taken part in the training which enhances teachers’ knowledge of quality literature and develops their ability to use it creatively in the classroom.

  • Free place for headteacher or senior leader on the first and last days of the training
  • 2 packs of carefully chosen children's books (20 books per teacher) and selected associated teaching resources
  • An audit of classroom literacy provision and support to develop a whole school approach to reading and writing
  • 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

“Reading levels have improved in almost all year groups. The most unexpected impact has been in writing. PoR has been instrumental in putting the purpose back into writing and motivating children to share their thoughts.”

Headteacher, Athersley North Primary School, Barnsley, PoR Barnsley training 2017-18

“PoR has given our teachers the tools and the will to teach reading and inspire children to become readers. The CLPE work and resources have enabled/ensured that all teachers have discovered the real power of reading and become “reading teachers”."

Headteacher, Kiveton Park meadows Junior School, Sheffield, PoR Barnsley training 2017-18

“All children have been engaged with the wide variety of texts, even those who are reluctant readers and writers. The activities are brilliant and have been successful in deepening children’s understanding of texts”.
