Our charity partner
Coram Beanstalk sees a future where every child is a reader.
Coram Beanstalk is a national children’s reading charity with 50 years’ experience in supporting children to become confident, independent readers. We know, and evidence shows, that when children not only can read but choose to read they achieve more academically – across the whole curriculum – and benefit from improved well-being and go on to greater success in life.
Coram Beanstalk reading helpers provide consistent, one to one, support to children in primary schools. They are trained to do far more than ‘listen to children read’ – they help children who are falling behind and may be missing the wider support they need to catch up, to switch onto reading, learn to read and become readers for life. They introduce children to brilliant books to help each child find and explore their own identity as a reader.
