City Year

The City Year team of young volunteers support the staff at Morningside Primary School from Mondays to Thursdays, 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 Morningside 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 Morningside values to encourage children to be aware of their behaviour and how it affects other people and their community;
  • Improve and encourage good attendance and behaviour.

The team is made up of 7 volunteers working across Year 2 and KS2 as well as supporting with reading during SfA. Throughout the day they offer general support to the students in the classroom, work as mentors 1:1 with the students as well as lead and play games in the playground. Along side this they also support both breakfast club and after-school clubs. They also run fabulous lunchtime activities including Lego club, Mathletics and staff the library.

The Credit Suisse team of 2016-17 are an extremely passionate, enthusiastic and committed team. They care about the young lives at Morningside and are determined to do whatever they can to have a positive impact.
