Buddy Reading

Buddy Reading is back at John Betts!


We are so pleased to be able to reintroduce our Buddy Reading across the school.


Buddy readers are paired with children from older classes to foster a love of reading and interactions that encourage conversations around stories. The older children get to become the teacher and encourage the children to be inquisitive about the book they are reading. It also allows the younger children the chance to be read to by an older child and build friendships.



School tours have now finished and will operate again throughout the autumn term in the next academic year 2024/2025 every Wednesday from 09.30-10.30. In September, please call the school on 02087482465 to book your place.
