Patron of Reading

A Patron of Reading is a designated author who works long-term with a school to build a relationship with the teachers and children. Full information about the amazing scheme can be found on the Patron of Reading website.

In short, the author will help the school to build a culture of reading through pleasure through workshops and general involvement in the school community. This might be through writing competitions, staff training, school visits or anything else that they agree will benefit the children.

If you would like more detailed information about how it works for schools or what to expect, check out the Patron of Reading website.

I am really excited to be working with Sturton-by-Stow Primary School in Lincolnshire as their Patron of Reading. Check out their Twitter feed for information about all of the exciting things that we are doing to promote reading and writing across the school!
