Reactions to our schools service

Headteachers endorsement – “The reason the RSVP Handbook is so useful is that it offers really sensible and manageable advice on child protection as well as guidance on how to improve children’s decoding and comprehension – we are going to send this to all our parents to help their sons/daughters at home.

It is really well presented and accessible to all – written in clear English.”

We were delighted to be contacted by Joan Whitehead from RSVP to ask if we would be interested in accepting volunteers to listen to our pupils read and were thrilled to welcome Mark and Susan, who have generously volunteered their time to assist children with their reading once a week.

The reading sessions are very popular and the children are always very enthusiastic to read. 

The help offered by these lovely volunteers is proving to make a real difference, boosting the children’s confidence and enjoyment of reading. Quite apart from that, they are benefiting from the life experience and wisdom of senior members of the community.

Dear Joan
Thank you for this. We love having Mark and Susan in the school. They are always friendly, interested, engaging, appropriate, life enhancing and making a difference. Not sure  about exemplary but we do try! Have a great summer.
Best wishes, Paul

Hi Joan, Thank you so much for finding Jacqui, she has been a wonderful addition
