Reading Recovery is an effective early intervention programme designed to reduce dramatically the number of children who have difficulties with reading and writing. Children are assessed on or soon after their sixth birthday. Some children who demonstrate difficulties are placed onto the Reading Recovery programme and receive, in addition to the classroom programme, specialised, daily individual instruction designed to bring them up to the average level for their class. Others may receive extra tuition in other ways including additional support in a junior literacy programme.
If your child has reading and writing difficulties and is fortunate enough to be placed on one of our reading support programmes, it is very important to ensure that he/she attends school every day. If not, the programme ceases to be effective and time and money are wasted. Parents of children who are put on Reading Recovery are asked to sign a contract to ensure the regular attendance of their child.
