Information for practitioners
Once signed-up by their local authority or school, each child receives their own colourful parcel of books, maths games, stationery every month for six months. For many children, it's the first time they have had a letter or a parcel through the post and for some it's the first time they have had books of their own.
Registration for 2019 is now open! Local authorities and schools can enrol children for The Letterbox Club. Each participating child gets six colourful parcels of books, number games and stationery - one per month, usually from May to October.
We receive some wonderful feedback from the children and adults. For our 15th annniversary, we're celebrating with some of our favourite hand-written postcards from children who receive Letterbox Club.
Letterbox Club parcels can inspire a love of reading and engagement with numeracy for vulnerable children in your area. Local authorities can use Pupil Premium Plus for children who are looked-after and Pupil Premium for other vulnerable children, to fund Letterbox Club
As well as children who are looked-after, the programme is suitable for other children you think would benefit.
