Learning Mentors

“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen and a push in the right direction”

Learning mentors provide support and guidance to help children who may be experiencing difficulties in learning, due to social, emotional or behavioural problems.

We are passionate about strengthening home school links as it has a positive impact on our pupils’ achievements. Miss Richardson has been working at St John’s for 9 years. Her role in school is to work with children and families as a professional friend and line of communication between home and school.

Mrs Henson has worked for St John’s for 7 years. She supports both teachers and children in the classroom, removing any barriers to learning through individualised 1:1 ,small group work and forest school activities.
