Peterborough Reads

Peterborough schools

Peterborough Reads inspires families across the city to read together, and helps parents and carers 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.

In 2022 we have partnered with five primary schools who will support our campaign with evaluations and case studies in return for two years National Literacy Trust membership and free books, thanks to funding from Arts Council England.
