Learning Mentors

Learning Mentors provide support and guidance to children who are experiencing difficulties in learning due to social, emotional or behaviour problems or other issues.  They provide support through one-to-one work and small group work.

Learning Mentors welcome referrals from parents/carers.  

If you need support while school is closed use the following link for Family Action


On the website you will find lots of useful information and a variety of ways that you can contact them for further support.

We work with children, their families, school staff and outside agencies to help develop their potential by removing barriers to learning.

A barrier to learning is anything that prevents a child from being in a suitable emotional or physical state to engage in lessons.

These factors could be:

  • Absence from school

  • Lateness/poor organisational skills

  • Bereavement

  • Behavioural difficulties

  • Bullying (victim and perpetrator)

  • Family difficulties

  • Friendship issues

  • Moving to a new house or school

  • Medical needs

  • Lack of social skills

  • Low self confidence

We support children in various ways, including working with them in the classroom, one-to-one or group sessions, being out in the playground and encouraging children to set their own realistic targets.

We also provide an environment where children can express their feelings safely. 

If you have anything you would like to discuss, please feel free to contact us. We are out on the playground every morning before school, or you can phone the school office, (01733 577600),
