School needs more reading buddies


The Duke of Bedford School is keen to recruit more reading buddies.

No teaching skills are required, just a willingness to spend a few hours each week listening to children reading. This reading aloud practice is a key element in improving reading skills.

Days and times are flexible, but you should be prepared to commit to attend on a regular basis. Volunteers of all ages are welcome.

If you are able to help or want more information, send your name, e-mail and contact number to Cathy Gibson, Assistant Headteacher at
