City Academy students are part of pioneering Teens and Toddlers project

A pioneering intervention programme which pairs teenagers as mentors to young children, has been run in Norfolk for the first time by City Academy Norwich, West Earlham Infant and Nursery School and the youth charity Teens and Toddlers.

Since February, the 18-week programme has seen a small group of Year 9 and 10 students from City Academy Norwich spending one afternoon a week out of school and working with children at nearby West Earlham Infant and Nursery School.
