Every academic year, approximately 4 Y12 students volunteer on Thursday afternoons, helping either small groups of primary pupils or individual pupils to further their academic progress, namely in literacy and maths. They also provide support to the class teacher.
To build and maintain close community relations and enable the primary pupils to further their academic progress. Furthermore, to allow the Y12 pupils to gain valuable communication and leadership skills.
The project has been running for over 15 years.
Each volunteer student is placed under the guidance of a teacher from the primary school.
The pupils (mixed) are from a range of classes.
The project takes place every year.
