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.

From summer 2019 until September 2020, we partnered with Peterborough Council and Vivacity for Peterborough Celebrates Reading - a year of successful events that put books into the hands of thousands of local children.

In 2021, we launched Doorstep to Digital an initiative to equip families with the tools they need to help their child succeed as well as supporting their happiness and wellbeing.
