Coram Beanstalk

We recruit, train and support volunteers to provide one-to-one literacy support in early years settings and primary schools to children who have fallen behind with their reading.

Our volunteers transform the lives of the children they support, turning them into confident, passionate and able readers.

What we do

Our reading helpers give them the support they need to improve their reading skills, reading ability and confidence. We also provide training to people within the school community who want to help children learn to read for pleasure whilst improving their reading skills. 

The children we help might have fallen behind with their reading, lack confidence, or struggle with their fluency, comprehension or vocabulary.

Our one-to-one reading support changes the child's life: 

  • Improving their reading ability.
  • Inspiring confidence in their own ability.
  • Increasing their enjoyment of reading.

Coram Beanstalk reading helpers are trained to recognise what challenges each child faces and tailor their sessions to support each child.

Each Coram Beanstalk reading helper works with an average of three children and provides consistant support on a weekly basis, for a whole school year. Together they read, play and talk.
