New teacher needed at Butterfly School

A project that helps children improve their reading is appealing for new teachers.

The Butterfly School Literacy Project is an accelerated reading club for children of all abilities.

The Butterfly School Literacy Project is urgently looking for new volunteers to help out on Saturday mornings.

The Butterfly School operates from St George’s Catholic Church on Moor Lane, Eastfield, with the sessions held between 10am and noon during term times.

This important project has been running for four years but one of its three main teachers is moving out of the area. The school now needs to find a new person quickly to keep it running smoothly.

Secretary of the school committee and team leader Kathy Bushell said: “At the moment we have three teachers but with one leaving we need another person.

“We are hoping for more than one so we can take a break now and again.

“The project is there to give some children a second chance and catch up. It also helps push on average readers to the next level.

“We really need someone who can help with leading a class. A male volunteer would be good as young boys react well to a positive role model.

“We would need some references and any volunteers would be CRB checked.”
