Book a place on this morning conference and find out about this highly successful project which has raised achievement in over 3500 schools nationally.

We are all very excited by this new surge of interest in reading and I have had parents of reluctant readers feeling compelled to contact me to share their delight that their children are reading independently.

Year 6 Teacher, Power of Reading 2015-16

The Power of Reading Project enhances teachers’ and children’s pleasure in reading. Children’s achievement is raised through teachers’ knowledge of literature and its creative use in the classroom.

This conference is an opportunity for schools, school consortiums, academies and Local Authorities to discover the impact of the Power of Reading project on children’s enthusiasm for reading and the profound effect this has on attainment in reading and writing.

SF Said, Author of Power of Reading book Varjak Paw

All pupils must be encouraged to read widely across both fiction and non-fiction to develop their knowledge of themselves and the world in which they live, to establish an appreciation and love of reading, and to gain knowledge across the curriculum. Reading also feeds pupils’ imagination and opens up a treasure-house of wonder and joy for curious young minds.
