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. It will transform schools literacy curriculums and delegates will discover how using great children’s literature and creative teaching approaches delights and engages children.

Head Teacher, Power of Reading Project 2014-2015

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.
