HA Jack Primary School has 850 pupils in total, the majority of whom come from Alexandra.

The centre works with all 127 Grade 2 learners and each child has at least one, one-on-one reading with a volunteer, once a week for 45 minutes.
We also assist the Grade 2’s with Numeracy and this is done in small groups of 2 or 3 to a volunteer for 30 minutes once a week.

This centre is a buzz of activity on literacy and numeracy mornings as our volunteers connect, encourage and prepare before the children join us.
We focus on making each child feel special and we make the most of every minute. We aim to ensure that every child leaves feeling positive, irrespective of their ability.

We have secure parking inside the school.
