Bookmark Reading

Bookmark was started in 2018 with a simple vision: we want every child to read.

The Chair and Founder, Sharon Pindar, was inspired by her own experiences to set up the charity. You can find out more about the story behind Bookmark by watching the short film.

At Nanpean School, we use Bookmark's programmes to support children's reading in years 1-4 who need support to meet expected standard for reading. 
How does it work?
The six-week programme provides two, 30-minute, one-to-one reading sessions each week, with a trained volunteer. These sessions take place online through a secure, interactive platform.
What are the benefits?
The programmes are evidence-based and evaluated by the National Literacy Trust. Sessions are clearly structured with varied and engaging content, including a range of books, games, and activities. Struggling readers are encouraged to choose what they want to read.
