What do our peer mentors do?
As always, we are developing alternative ways of helping children to progress with their Maths and Literacy at Burton upon Stather Primary School. One of the ways that has proven to be very successful is delivering a peer mentor programme in school with selected pupils in year 5 and 6 helping younger children with their Maths and Literacy skills. Over the last 3 years, since we started this programme, we have seen some fantastic results and enjoyed watching our mentors and pupils grow in confidence!
We have carefully chosen pupils who are talented in Maths and Literacy and whom teachers feel would be confident when working with younger pupils.
