What do Learning Mentors do?

The key aim for the Learning Mentors is helping students of all ages and abilities achieve their full potential.

This involves identifying barriers to learning and ways in which they can be dealt with.

These barriers can often be personal to the individual student. 

The Learning Mentors are attached to Year groups and play a significant role in monitoring students who are 'Looked After' as well as those who are in need of a care plan.

They work with students largely on a 1-2-1 or small group basis, but also run lunchtime or after school clubs and drop-in sessions.  They work together with parents and carers to develop a support system that is of benefit to the student and the family as a whole.

At a ground level Mentors work in partnership with teaching staff to support students in their emotional and academic needs.  They liase with a range of professionals in the community.  which includes:

  • Educational Social Workers
  • GP's
  • Youth workers
  • Counsellors
  • The Police Force

The students benefit from a comprehensive assessment to identify unmet needs which are then planned for and reviewed termly.

S.M.A.R.T. goals are set weekly to motivate students to achieve their individual targets.

Monitoring and evaluation procedures are used to measure achievements in quantitative and qualititive terms.

When students demonstrate improvement and their targets have been achieved they will be off programme.
