Reading Force

Solent Infant School has a range of Service pupils whose parents can be deployed for up to a year at a time. Laura Peterkin-Aldred, Headteacher, runs an after school club for Service children which parents are also invited to join.

Reading Force

Reading Force is a shared reading initiative for Service families. The charity organisation is funded by The Royal British Legion’s External Grants programme (May 18 – April 19) to provide free books and scrapbooks to Service children of all ages, in order to support and encourage Armed Forces families with shared reading both at home or when separated.

 

Through this programme, participating families experience the following benefits:
• Maintaining good contact with a parent when they are away from home;
• Increased contact with extended family, especially grandparents;
• Improved communication within the whole family;
• More fathers get involved with their children’s reading;
• A sense of community and affirmed identity.
