Pioneering peer-mentoring project to improve literacy

“Please spare a few minutes to look at this video produced by our students who have embarked on a pioneering peer-mentoring project to improve literacy in the school:

The students, with the support of their English teacher, are running a catch-up reading project, in which Year 7s are coached by Year 11s using ‘Yes We Can Read’. The progress in both year groups has been quite remarkable. The students want to share their story so they have produced this video to show to other schools across the UK.”
