- KILLER IN YOUR BEDROOM
Oxfordshire business, Snorer Pharmacy® (snorer.com/pharmacy), is supporting Fritwell C of E Primary School (www.fritwellprimaryschool.co.uk), providing them with an annual subscription to digital children’s reading platform, Fonetti (fonetti.com), through its schools sponsorship programme.
Snorer Pharmacy® offers snorers a new and accessible way to get help online. By harnessing the expertise of sleep-trained community pharmacists, patients can easily find a route to healthy, restorative sleep.
Says Adrian Zacher, from Snorer Pharmacy®,
“We chose award-winning and Department for Education (DfE) approved, Fonetti, because reading, like sleep, provides a solid foundation for growth. This is why we’ve invested in local young readers, as we develop our nationwide Snorer Pharmacy® service.”
Fonetti, is used extensively in both schools and at home.
By listening as children read aloud, Fonetti allows children to practise their reading and improve their literacy and language skills, by tracking time read and accuracy. Whilst the School Portal allows teachers to monitor pupil’s progress, so they can focus limited resources where they are most needed.
Says Jonathan Hart, Headteacher at Fritwell CofE Primary School,
“Fonetti has been a wonderful gift for us. It has enabled children to access high quality, engaging texts and see how accurately they can read. The books they read can be tailored by the class teacher who can get immediate feedback on the children’s performance. The children love it too!”

The Fonetti schools sponsorship package offers measurable and reportable results, providing resources including social media assets and ready to use graphics.
And, there is no hard work involved, as once a package is decided and a school nominated, the Fonetti team do the rest, liaising with the school on behalf of the sponsor.
“We wanted to help children to catch-up and regain their confidence after lockdown whilst supporting teachers, who do such a fabulous job.
“I had seen the benefits of the Fonetti App, having watched my own children use it and become enthusiastic readers, even my five year old. Seeing this transformation, I wanted to share the opportunity with all the pupils at their school and, at the same time, adding to Snorer Pharmacy’s® corporate social responsibility (CSR) activity.”
Adds, Kim Antoniou, Founder and CEO of Auris tech, the developers of Fonetti,
“We are totally passionate about increasing children’s literacy, not only in the UK but globally.
“Supporting schools, via our schools sponsorship programme, allows us to provide engaging and interactive books to hundreds of children at a time.
“We are very grateful to Snorer Pharmacy® for choosing us as their CSR partner and look forward to working together into the future.”
