Learning Mentor Support
Here at St. Mark’s, we aim to provide a balanced and holistic education that will liberate each child to develop their full potential to take their place in society and contribute to the Common Good.
Two mornings a week, Julian Reid, our school mentor supports children in school by providing support, motivation and guidance to help children overcome barriers to their learning in order to achieve their full potential.
This work is usually on a one-to-one basis, and is always planned to meet the needs of each individual child. The sessions are provided regularly until the challenges have been overcome.
Our mentor, Julian also checks in with pupils after the completion of their sessions to monitor their well-being and ensure they are managing well.
There can be numerous reasons why a child/ren may need some mentoring support. The following are some areas children and/or families may experience:
- Gaining new perspectives
- Challenging behaviour
- Confidence and self-esteem issues
- Social and communication skills
- Develop emotional resilience and character
Julian Reid, School Mentor
There is no judgement made by the mentor or the school as to why any child at any point in their education may benefit from mentoring support. We simply want to ensure that every child is given the best education possible to help them succeed and live a fulfilled life.
