Teens & Toddlers
Teens to Toddlers
Over the last 18 weeks nine pupils from Bolingbroke Academy have participated in the Teens and Toddlers programme, mentoring pupils at Swaffield Primary School.
Pupils developed their communication and personal skills, improved their own wellbeing and identified goals for themselves. The staff at Swaffield were impressed with the change in pupils from Bolingbroke over the 18 weeks and the impact that they had on their mentees.
The teacher from Swaffield applauded the work of the pupils: “They have formed amazing relationships with both adults and children in the classroom. They never ask what they have to do, they just get on with what the children are doing, leading them in to thoughtful conversations and meaningful play. They have been especially helpful in phonics sessions as they have taken on a one-to-one role with the children who are really struggling with certain letters, going over them and writing them together”.
All the hard work and dedication demonstrated by the Bolingbroke pupils was rewarded at their graduation, where programme organiser Dawn Kendall praised the group and the impact they had on the pupils at Swaffield.
