Dear headteacher,

Please find attached below a very useful presentation and an expression of interest form about a sustainable reading project with Pop Up Projects. The presentation was delivered to the council and the Solihull school improvement group on the 10 Sep 2019.

The proposed, sustainable reading project which is suitable for primary, secondary, SEN and PRU schools was delivered by Jasmine Tucker from ‘ Pop Up Projects CIC’. In light of the new focus on reading in the new Ofsted education inspection framework and the importance of reading in schools; this project or something tailored to your schools’ needs is being proposed to you for your consideration.

It was a very useful morning and a very engaging presentation. The headteachers and council advisers who were present for the presentation agreed that it should be circulated to all headteachers in Solihull. Hope you find it useful.
