Learning Mentor: Miss Louise Collier
I am available Monday to Thursday 8.30am-4.30am
What is a Learning Mentor?
Learning Mentors help to support children so they can achieve their full potential. Mentors liaise with pupils, parents, staff, and outside agencies, identify any children with problems that might be affecting their learning, and develop strategies to overcome those problems. Children benefit from the opportunity to talk to an adult other than a parent or a teacher and can find it useful to talk to someone who is not directly involved in their everyday lives.
A Learning Mentor is not:
A person to whom a child is sent when naughty.
Why do children need Learning Mentors?
What do I do?
I will be working across the school supporting children from all years with their emotional, social, academic, and behavioural learning. I will provide 1:1 sessions, group sessions, support during breaks and lunchtimes, and can also work in class. I will work with lots of different children for different reasons, and my work will vary depending on their individual needs. I also run clubs separate to the Mentoring scheme.
I can help by:
Listening to any worries.
Developing social skills.
Developing academic skills.
Enabling children to understand and manage emotions.
Supporting a child through life events…
