A modern definition of a Learning Mentor is: 'A person who helps another move on in life to where they want to be.'
Our Learning Mentors are Mrs Ormston and Mrs Post
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
Bullying (victim and perpetrator)
Moving to a new house or school
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. Our room is called The Den.
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, (577600), or feel free to come to The Den - the outside door is located on the Reception playground, next to Class 3.
You can also email us:
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
We also offer a Webster Stratton Parenting Course and the opportunity to meet other parents at a weekly coffee morning, (see the Parent Group page for details).
