Peterborough Reads

Peterborough schools

Peterborough Reads inspires families across the city to read together, and helps parents to support their children’s literacy skills. We particularly work with early years professionals to improve early reading and writing skills, and to ease the transition between primary and secondary school.

We are a key partner in Peterborough Celebrates Reading, a year of reading celebrations from summer 2019 to summer 2020 that asks everyone in the city – teachers, parents and businesses – to play their part in helping children to develop a lifelong love of reading.
