How can we work with schools

Button & Bear was set up in 2016 bringing expertise in the development of reading programmes to schools, teachers & librarians across the region.

The work with schools has an outcome based approach meaning that stretched budgets can be targeted at the areas that can have the greatest effect. 

The approach is based on ensuring that you have in place each of the four essential structures to build readers for life, Access, Opportunity, Inspiration and Skill.
