School Mentors

All Year 5 and 6 children have the opportunity to apply to be a Mentor. To apply, they either write a letter of application or complete an application form. The children are then trained in the responsibilities of being a mentor.

The responsibilities of Mentors include:

  • Digital Mentors help improve the use of any aspect of IT across the school. Digital mentors help teach other children how to use software, help teachers with setting up IT equipment and sometimes they test and evaluate new resources. 
  • Office Mentors help with various administrative jobs on their allocated day.
  • School Environment Mentors help to keep the school tidy, identify ways to improve aspects of safety, improve displays and the outdoor areas.
  • Buddying, where a Mentor partners a younger child at playtime or at other arranged times.  Buddies also help children who join the school find their way around and make friends.
  • Wet Play Mentors help the younger children learn to play various games during wet playtimes.
  • Learning Mentors The role of Learning Mentors was introduced in September 2016 to help improve learning throughout the school.  Learning mentors have two roles and they work directly with the headteacher and class teachers.  The first role of the learning mentors is to help monitor learning in each class by conducting audits and talking to other children to find out about how they are learning and identify where they need to get better.  They then help devise plans to help achieve this.  The second role of the learning mentors is to be an individual 'learning buddy' for a younger child, who they regulatory meet with to discuss their learning and provide support.
