We are still looking to recruit some parent helpers for our invaluable Guided Reading scheme that all boys in Y3 and Y4 take part in. Parents of boys in all year groups would be very welcome.

There would be a slight difference this year, in that helpers would be conducting the sessions remotely (from home) via a Teams meeting. Helpers must be able to commit to the sessions once a week for the whole year but the school can be more flexible with the timings of the sessions this year and can slot the Guided Reading sessions around the schedule of our helpers (as we realise that Periods 7 and 8 on a Monday would impact on school pick up.) Each volunteer would still need to undergo a DBS check and some Safeguarding Training. If you are interested in becoming a Guided Reading helper, please email ljohnson@bedfordschool.org.uk  with your availability and we will be in touch.

Any help with this initiative, which we know benefits the boys enormously and which we believe helpers really enjoy too, would be hugely appreciated.
