BABY Millie Lockett is only aged three months but she is already helping to teach young children at Wolsey Junior School in New Addington.

The school, in King Henry's Drive, is taking part in the Roots of Empathy programme.

It is a classroom-based programme aimed at fostering empathy and reducing levels of aggression and violence among schoolchildren.

The pupils are able to see Millie's feelings and reflect them upon their own.

Instructor Julie Boutle explained that if they see Millie is crying and upset about something, they can relate that to their classmate when the same situation occurs with them.

Karen Williams, deputy head, said: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to be part in the roots of empathy programme.

"We strongly believe in developing pupils social and emotional skills at Wolsey Juniors."

Baby Millie will come into the school nine times over 27 weeks to visit the pupils aged seven and eight.
