In 2014 we developed a mentoring programme for pupils in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 in partnership with Black Families Education Support Group.
Primary mentoring is now a core part of our work, and we support pupils referred by Behaviour & Attendance Panels of primary head teachers in Bath, Norton Radstock and Chew Valley.
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 during school hours, beginning in school but extending to specially arranged activities and experiences beyond.
Please contact us if you would like more information about 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.
