Read On Nottingham is delighted to be working with Cheltenham Festivals in delivering the Festivals’ network of teacher book groups in the East Midlands .

Reading Teachers = Reading Pupils is a Cheltenham Festivals programme delivered in partnership with like-minded organisations across the UK including Book Council of Wales, Bradford Literature Festival, Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), English and Media Centre, Just Imagine, National Literacy Trust, KEAP (The Writers’ Block), Peters, Seven Stories the National Centre for Children's Books, The Reader, The Story Museum and Wigtown Festival Company.

Set up in 2016, the national network of teachers reading groups aims to inspire reading for pleasure because research shows that children who read for pleasure experience high levels of well-being, engage in learning and are successful in life.

In Nottingham

Read On Nottingham will be hosting a secondary RTRP programme which is open to all Key Stage 3 English teachers. To include as many schools as possible, places are limited to two teachers per school, this may include one teacher and one librarian.

All sessions will be led by Read On Nottingham. The group is FREE to attend, and the shared resources are distributed throughout the year along with copies of each of the five titles.

Applications for the 2022/23 academic year are now open - schools can register here.
