Schools Supporting Looked After Children Beanstalk provides consistent support for Looked After Children, helping each child twice a week for 30-minutes, for at least a full school year. Our reading helpers build a trusting and positive relationship in their reading sessions, helping Looked After Children close the gap with their peers. We can support Looked After Children across different primary schools, or concentrate on either a chosen year group or individual school. Our support for Looked After Children is £214 per child per year.

He has benefited hugely from his Beanstalk sessions, he is now working towards expectations for his age and his confidence has dramatically improved. St Vincent de Paul Primary School His reading confidence, understanding and comprehension has improved so much through reading with a Beanstalk reading helper twice a week. His carer also feels that his confidence and ability has improved when she reads with him at home too.
