The Learning Mentor
I am Mrs Bool and my role in school is the Learning Mentor/Attendance Officer.
In my role I have the welfare of all our pupils,familys and carers as my top priority.
This starts with their regular attendance to school,finding strategies and solutions to support and encourage pupils to access education.
As a Mentor I have pupils who access me for learning support in English to help and encourage them to become more confident with their reading,writing,spelling,handwriting and grammar.
My role also supports the pupils who have every day struggles outside of school. This could be a range of problems for example low self esteem and self worth.Drinking/drugs,gangs,anger and self harm to name a few.
I also support families who are struggling to cope and just need extra support by offering a TAF and working alongside outside agencies to access the best support we can offer.
I also run the Parenting Support Group,which enables parents and carer's to get together and support each other as it's good to know your not on your own.
