Reading Recovery

St Enda’s is delighted to be able to offer the Reading Recovery Program to our students.

Reading Recovery was developed in the 1970s by New Zealand educator Prof. Dame Marie Clay. It is a short term literacy intervention for primary school children who are struggling with reading and writing after their first year of school. The intervention involves intensive one-to-one lessons for 30 minutes a day with a specially trained Reading Recovery teacher, for an average of 20 weeks (about two terms). The programme is different for every child, assessing what the child knows and what he/she needs to learn next.
