22/23 READ Gloucestershire! will be bigger than ever!

READ Gloucestershire! is a county-wide campaign, bringing together local and national partners to help inspire your pupils to read, providing reading for pleasure support throughout the school year, with a focus on a 2-week county-wide celebration in June 2023.

Make sure you receive our regular emails, jam-packed with useful information, including:

  • How to apply to get school-sets of £1 World Book Day 2023 books to give directly to pupils
  • The opportunity to transform your library with help from Gloucestershire Libraries and Little Box of Books
  • Access to free virtual author events
  • Information and access to a wide range of pragmatic reading for pleasure resources, tools and activities
  • Signposting to other great reading for pleasure initiatives


Ways to get involved

Join the Gloucestershire Readathon!

Order your kit to join other Gloucestershire schools who are reading and raising to buy books for seriously ill children. With incredible resources provided in each kit, reading becomes even more exciting.

Author-in-Residence – M.G. Leonard

Award-winning and best-selling author, M. G. Leonard, has produced a range of brilliant, Key Stage-tailored supporting videos for pupils, and a CPD session to help teachers and librarians to incorporate reading for pleasure into their work.

Our free web app, Track My Read – make reading count

Track My Read is brilliantly simple: pupils log what they read, how long for and how much they enjoyed it; in return, teachers and librarians get valuable reading behaviours data, providing a wealth of evidence and insights about pupils’ reading choices.
