Reading Programme in the English Classroom

For this initiative schools are asked to consider the most appropriate reading laboratory e.g. SRA and use it outside of the learning support context with a JCSP class group.

It is envisaged that schools would run a six week programme using a reading laboratory resource, aimed at accelerating reading and providing students with a regular opportunity to read at their own level and track their progress. Schools are requested to select first year JCSP students to participate in this initiative and to implement pre and post testing and a student reading survey.

Please enclose in your evaluation a detailed description of the activities undertaken in the running of the initiative along with any relevant photographs. We would be very grateful if the photographs are sent to us digitally. Please make sure that you have sought permission from parents/guardians/students to use the photographs in publications.

Evaluations must be submitted online at
