Reading Mentors

This week another group of Year 10 and 11 pupils took part in the Reading Mentor training.

We now have significant numbers volunteering to help year 7 and 8 pupils with their reading.

In this training, the aims were to learn what it feels like to struggle to read, learn how phonics can help pupils with their reading and also to discover different strategies.

Now this training has been completed, they will join the Reading Mentor Team, working with Year 7 and 8 pupils during form time, twice per week, in order to listen, support and guide younger pupils on their reading journey.

Well done to all of our mentors and thank you.
