Number Partners matches business volunteers with primary school pupils who need some additional help with their maths. Volunteers participate in weekly half-hour sessions of playing specially developed board games to help pupils gain confidence in their maths and develop their social skills.
Go for Reading
Go For Reading partners business volunteers with reluctant readers in secondary schools around Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. This weekly activity involves reading, playing word games and building relationships with two students each week, to help them improve their skills and confidence in reading.
If you’re a business or school and would like to get involved in Number Partners or Go for Reading, please contact Fiona Spence-Arnold in our Children and Young People team.
