How Does BRSP Work?

A trained Better Reading Support Partner provides a 10-week programme of three 15-minute one-to-one sessions per week for pupils who have fallen behind at reading. The Partner uses simple assessments to select three texts for each pupil to read in each session. They provide a relaxed environment that gives pupils the time and space to practise and apply the skills taught by their teachers and to talk about their reading with an interested adult. The Partner is supported by an in-school Link Teacher who manages the partnership.

“BRSP has been a great success in our school. It has been amazing to observe the confidence that children have gained in their reading skills. As a result of the quality training our teaching assistants received we have highly skilled human resources to support our children.”

Janice Owen, Head Teacher, Longlands Primary School, Bexley
