A pilot visit which saw GSCE students from a Spalding secondary school work with pupils from a primary school in the town will be extended after the success of the exercise.

Students from the Sir John Gleed School spent two days at St Paul’s Primary School in Queen’s Road.

The year ten students did music and movement classes with the Reception and Year 1 children, which was linked to numeracy and geography from their curriculum.

Childcare teacher Sharron Aspden told the Free Press: “It was the first time we’d had a primary liaison visit.

“It was a pilot se see if St Paul’s wanted to work with us again and to promote the good work we do at the Gleed.

“It was such a success that they have already said they want us to come back again.”

Sharron said she is also hoping to work with other primary schools in the area when the new intake of childcare GSCE students start the course in September.

Students on other courses may also be taken to primary schools for liaison days. “We are hoping to forge really goodcommunity links,” added Sharon.
