Every Child a Reader

ECAR ( Every Child a Reader) has been an integral part of Barlow Hall's school improvement since 2006. As part of the Manchester Teaching School Alliance we are pleased to offer our School to School support package. Barlow Hall is a 300 place primary school in Manchester, 50% of children have free school meals, 40% have English as an additional language. Despite low starting points, high mobility and non-English speaking overseas arrivals, our reading standards at level 4 and 5 have been above national averages for a number of years. To complement the development of Guided Reading and Reading Recovery across your school and ensure that it impacts on teaching and learning from EYFS to year 6, we are offering the following four main professional development programmes, detailed in this brochure. The programmes can stand alone or be combined. We can deliver: 1. A whole school approach to guided reading 2. A complete bespoke package, designed and tailored to meet the needs of individual schools  3. Reading Network, embedding reading through a whole school approach 4. An annual programme of reading interventions.
