Charity information: Assisted Reading for Children (ARCh)
Even in a prosperous area like Oxfordshire there are many children who have trouble reading.
Some have lost confidence because they’ve fallen behind.
Some are shy and don’t communicate well.
Some have missed out on the development of vital skills in early childhood.
Some have difficulty concentrating.
Some don’t speak English at home.
Some just need a boost to help them catch up.
ARCh recruits, trains and supports volunteers in primary schools across Oxfordshire, we help hundreds of children a year.
The children have two individual half-hour sessions each week during term-time with their ARCh volunteer in school.
ARCh volunteers do a variety of things with the children, they read, play games, help the children write their own stories, or just talk.
The aim is to break the world record and to raise funds for ARCh
