City Year

The City Year team of young volunteers support the staff at Sebright Primary School in a full time capacity, to provide mentoring and tutoring support to the pupils.  They assist with after school clubs, work with the teaching staff in the classroom and deliver one-to-one help in numeracy and literacy. City Year UK is working in partnership with Sebright Primary School to:

  • Create positive and supportive relationships with children to help them attain the highest standard of achievement they can;
  • Use City Year and Sebright culture to encourage children to be aware of their behaviour and how it affects other people and their community;
  • Improve and incentivise good attendance and behaviour.

City Year plan to organise several events across the school year, including a Breakfast Club Christmas Party, City Year's Got Talent (a London-wide talent show) and City Year Championship (London-wide football tournament).

You can find out more about City Year on their website.
