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

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

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.

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 two copies of each of the five titles.

Applications for the next academic year open on Tuesday 9 June 2020.
