Learning Mentors

 

We have two Learning Mentors at St George's Primary School, Mrs Rice and Mrs Broad.  Their role includes working with children, parents, carers, teachers and other agencies on various issues which may affect a child's learning.  These can include:

 

  • Punctuality and Attendance
  • Changes in behaviour causing detriment to learning
  • Friendship issues
  • Low self esteem and confidence
  • Settling in of new children
  • Transition to their new class, key stage or high school
  • Support parents or carers with routines, managing behaviour at home
  • A point of contact for parents and carers on a daily basis.

 

Mrs Broad and Mrs Rice work with children on a 1:1 basis or in a small group to help improve the situation and assist children to re-engage in their learning.  The involvement of parents in this type of work is important and highly valued.  If your child is working with a Learning Mentor you will receive regular communication, your thoughts and feedback is important.

 

Mrs Broad and Mrs Rice love working with children and families, their door is always open.  Anyone is welcome to discuss any problems or ideas they may have.  If you want to contact Mrs Broad or Mrs Rice you will find them in the playground each morning or you can call the school office.

 

The Learning Mentor role includes working as part of the Safeguarding Team.  This service includes supporting families and children in times of crisis and working closely with other partner agencies.  If you are concerned about your child you are encouraged to approach the Learning Mentors to discuss any worries so support can be offered or you could be signposted to another agency.
