Better Basics is a reading enhancement programme designed to support and advance reading skills amongst primary school age pupils. It is aimed at children who require some additional assistance to improve their reading, but are not in receipt of mainstream learning supports. The programme supports improvement in children’s reading ability through one to one paired learning with a reading volunteer in the participating school.

The programme is run in partnership with the Library Service, County Kildare Leader Partnership and local national schools. To date the programme has been run successfully in four national schools in County Kildare.

Better Basics Objectives are:

Greater involvement and interest in school life.

Increased confidence in reading ability.

Future school retention.
