As the Pastoral Team at St Peter’s CE Primary & Nursery School we aim to provide support for all of our pupils and their families. We offer a safe place where individuals are valued, listened to and supported to overcome any barriers to learning.


Learning Mentors can make a difference…..

Learning Mentors work with young people to help them to

understand how to overcome barriers to their learning.

Their role includes:
 Helping them manage difficulties in their lives.
 Helping them to understand about being a good friend and co-operating with others.
 Raising their self esteem.
 Motivating them to be successful and achieve.
 Encouraging them to be more self-sufficient and independent.
 Listening to their views.
 Producing a plan of work towards agreed goals.
 Supporting them to organise their time and work in school and at home.

Barriers to learning may be:
 Negative emotions
 Low self confidence
 Difficult family circumstances
 Problems with friendships and relationships
 Worries and concerns about transferring from one key stage to another particularly primary to secondary school
 Worries about changes in their lives
 Difficulties with organisation

We work alongside your child’s teacher, to offer extra support for your child

and help them to make the most of their time at school

Learning Mentors can offer support through:
 One to one mentoring sessions
 Focused group sessions
 Liaising with parents/carers and teachers to support pupil progress
 Shared, family conversations
 Extra help with transition at all levels
 Liaising with outside agencies
 Core group meetings

Learning Mentors work with children’s
teachers to help them to enjoy theirchildhood and achieve,

so that they are able to build on their learning for
successful and happy futures.
