Learning Mentors

Mr Ortega

Mrs Porter

What We Do:

As Learning Mentors in Dee Point we work with a range of children across school to support their social and emotional needs enabling them to access their learning.

We work one to one or with small groups of children in the afternoons and then support them during their learning in the mornings.

We also deliver PSHE lessons which cover subjects like keeping yourself safe, understanding their own mental health, wellbeing and emotional literacy. This is a very important aspect of children’s learning as it helps them with their emotional development. 

Parents and Communication

Another important part of our role is building relationships with parents. It is important to us that parents feel they have a forum and opportunity to come and chat with us about any concerns or queries that they have, or even just the chance to talk. We are around and about both mornings and afternoons to see children in and out of school which gives parents an opportunity to catch us if they need us!

Parenting Help/Advice

Mrs Porter will be running a parenting course along with our Family Support Officer, Mrs Livingstone. This has proved to be very helpful to parents who have already attended so if you would like further information or would be interested in joining us please come and let one of us know. Our next course will start in October.
