Learning Mentors – Angie and Paula
We have worked together for a number of years here at St Anne’s, our job is to make sure all children are in school, on time, safe and happy. Our role is to help remove any barriers to learning that they may have, and thereby support their overall development.
We support children from Nursery to Year 6 – we do this through:
- 1-1 Individual support
- Small group sessions
- Friendship groupwork
- In the classroom
- Circle times
- Out of School Activities
- Working with parents/carers
- Networking with agencies
- Inviting outside initiatives/projects in
- Attendance Initiatives
- Working closely with all staff
- Being part of SMT
Possible reasons why children may work with Pastoral Care;
- They are underachieving
- They are experiencing bereavement and loss
- Have low self esteem/confidence
- Experiencing behaviour difficulties
- Are bullying or being bullied
- Having a family crisis
- Are new to our school
- Transition through key stages
- Are absent from school
- Are persistently late
- Need a little TLC and would benefit from Learning Mentor input
We are involved with our School Council and Breakfast club. We deliver extra-curricular activities such as knitting and textiles, Art Club, Basketball and Lunchtime Activity clubs. We also support residential trips.
We have great links with our community and we promote community harmony by maintaining our links with Children’s Services, Health Services, Family Action, Housing Associations, Local Community Police Officers and Counsellors to name a few. We also support and promote community groups and projects.
We are available at the beginning and end of the day for parents/carers and children to approach us for any information sharing, advice or general updates.
Parents/carers can also contact us at the school.
