Bluecoat Friendly Grandparents

We are keen to involve the wider community in the life of the school, and with that in mind, we have set up a group for retired people who have some connection to the school, willing to give of some of their time to volunteer a for an hour or two a week/month. The BFGs interact with the children through reading, gardening, talking about their childhood, sharing a skill and walking with classes to the library.

The group is beneficial for both younger and older generations to interact with each other, something that some of our children may not have the opportunity to experience very much.
