Our Learning Mentor – Annie Goddard
Learning mentors support, motivate and challenge pupils
who are underachieving.
They help pupils overcome barriers to learning caused by
social, emotional and behavioural problems.
The Learning mentor mainly works with children who experience ‘barriers to learning’, including poor literacy/numeracy skills, underperformance against potential, poor attendance, disaffection, danger of exclusion, difficult family circumstances and low self-esteem.
The Learning Mentor may be involved in the following activities:
Identifying, in association with school staff, pupils who would benefit from mentoring.
Liaising with parents and carers to promote a mutually respectful relationship with the school.
Implementing strategies and supporting pupils in confidence-building activities.
Listening to and helping pupils resolve a range of issues that are creating barriers to learning.
Drawing up agreed action plans with pupils and parents / carers.
Working closely with teachers, attendance officers and other professionals, such as social workers, educational psychologists and education welfare officers.
