In school, we have two Learning Mentors who work with pupils who have been identified as needing additional pastoral support.
Our Learning Mentors
Linzi & Jenny
These support sessions can be individual or group sessions depending on the situation and circumstances, and these sessions are held in our newly renovated 'Hub'.
There are no set of criteria that a pupil needs to meet to be allocated to a Learning Mentor. We aim to be flexible and to provide support for any pupils who we feel would benefit from support from a Learning Mentor. Pupils can access support from, and time to work with, a Learning Mentor for any number of reasons including bereavement, behaviour issues, home issues, safeguarding concerns, friendship issues, changes in home situation etc.
Any staff member can identify a pupil as needing support from, and time to work with, a Learning Mentor and pupils and parents themselves can also request this support.
