With the support of a grant from St John’s Hospital, during the academic year 2014-15 we developed a mentoring programme for pupils in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 in partnership with Black Families Education Support Group.
We’re excited to be continuing this work in the 2015-16 academic year, supporting ten pupils referred by Bath’s Behaviour & Attendance Panel of primary head teachers.
Primary mentoring applies all our group work and one-to-one mentoring methods, skills and insight, adapted for younger pupils who need support with engagement, confidence, family or other problems.
Mentors work one-to-one with pupils, beginning in school but extending to activities and experiences beyond.
Please contact us if you would like more information about this exciting pilot programme and your school becoming involved.
He appears to be more engaged in class and he has been displaying a positive attitude towards all areas of his learning. I think this is largely due to the impact of the mentoring scheme because it has enabled C to have a positive role model that he sees on a regular basis. C’s mentor has been supportive and has offered a lot of advice about his behaviour in class and out of class.
