What is a Family Learning Mentor?
I am the Family Learning Mentor at Lea Community Primary School and my name is Christine Green. I work within your school to help you, the pupil, with any problems you feel you may not be able to understand or deal with alone. I will listen, offer practical help and advice, and help you to make the most of your time at Lea Community Primary School. I am here to support and represent you.
Family Learning Mentors are not teachers.
If you see me in one of your lessons, I am there to help a pupil, not to teach the lesson.
What kind of problems can the Family Learning Mentor help with?
You may feel as if no one cares and you can't easily tell your parents, carers or teachers because you may be worried they may not understand. You may feel worried about talking because you are scared. There may be many reasons. At times you may feel as if you can't concentrate or work as hard as you could or usually do because a problem is getting worse, too big and out of control. Talking to the Family Learning Mentor may help to stop you feeling frustrated with everything.
