Community Action with St Luke's CofE Primary School

Boys from The Manchester Grammar School assist pupils in Years 1-2 at St Luke's CofE Primary School with their reading and other activities.

Aims

For boys from The Manchester Grammar School to support Year 1-2 pupils at St Luke's CofE Primary School in their reading and other activities.

Background

The partnership was set up under the umbrella of The Manchester Grammar School Community Action programme. MGS Year 10 boys support pupils in their reading and other activities at St Luke's. Many boys use it as part of the volunteering section of their Duke of Edinburgh qualification, so the relationship between schools is mutually beneficial.

Resources

This takes place at St Luke's CofE Primary School in a variety of Key Stage 1 classrooms. MGS boys are picked up by the St Luke's school minibus, who transport them there and back, overseen by a member of the MGS teaching staff.

Pupil Involvement

Typically, a dozen Year 10 boys are invited each year.

Frequency

Volunteering takes place throughout the whole academic year, with one hour per week during the boys' lunchtimes.
