A reading buddy scheme has been launched at St Peter's School, in Huntingdon, to reinforce the anti-bullying message.
The scheme aims to encourage reluctant readers from Year 7 and Year 8 to read alongside a sixth form buddy.
The scheme uses the Barony & Echo activity books issued free by the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain to selected schools. The books reinforce the anti-bullying message through the use of metaphor.
Karen Bobrowicz, special needs co-ordinator, said: "The books are beautifully presented in full colour and the presentation alone ensures that our students take the intervention very seriously.

The scheme is sponsored by Tudor Foods Ltd, News International and the Police Community Club.
