Learning Mentor

A message from our Learning Mentor, Mrs Wood:
“As learning mentor, I am here to help, guide and support the children and parents or carers through difficult times. I can offer support in school and signpost to other agencies. I support children struggling with social, emotional, and behavioural problems. I run small intervention groups to support these children as and when needed and provide information and advice to parents and carers. I work closely with classroom staff and parents or carers to ensure as much support available is given.”

 

Bereavement

We understand that during a time of bereavement it can be very difficult to explain what has happened/happening to children young and old. In school, we will help and support your family during this time and refer to various agencies for advice.
We use a variety of resources but have found the following publications to be especially useful:

The Invisible String by Patrice Karst

Why Things Die by Katie Daynes

I Miss You – A First Look At Death by Pat Thomas

Here are some useful links as a parent to read through to help support your child through bereavement.
