Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutoring allows children to help other children with their learning. Peer Tutors motivate, support and engage their tutees. The Peer Tutors take part in a 2-day training programme to prepare them for their role. During their training, they take part in a range of activities to help them understand their responsibilities and to equip them with the skills needed to support other learners. Peer Tutoring brings several benefits: tutors have the opportunity to share their knowledge and skills with others. This builds their confidence and deepens their learning. Tutees enjoy a supportive relationship with a positive role model, which can have a powerful impact on their learning.  

This the second year of running the project. Pupils currently in Year 6 supported their peers within class during the academic year 2020-21. This year, 12 to 15 Year 5 Peer Tutors will be working once a week with a child in Year 2 to support their reading. Miss Newcombe will be running the project and will be working closely with both sets of children to monitor its success and offer additional support if needed.
