Learning Mentor

At Great Moor Junior School, we’re supporting pupil wellbeing. As a school, we take emotional and mental health and wellbeing very seriously. We are committed to supporting our pupils, staff and their families. We understand that everyone experiences life's challenges differently and that can make any one of us vulnerable at times. It is in these times, that additional support and strategies may be needed. We aim to address this in a number of ways.

We mentor and support pupils in school to help them find the correct strategies to cope with the emotional challenges they are facing. This may be through, 1:1 or group sessions, or whole class activities. Together we tackle issues such as: low self-esteem or confidence, friendship difficulties, transition to a new class or school, dealing with anger, bereavement or other loss, and any other emotional challenges that might be a barrier to learning. Our class teachers and support staff are active each day in supporting our pupils’ needs. In addition to this, you may wish to contact our Learning Mentor, Mrs Roberts, if you feel your child may benefit from group or individual support. She can be contacted by email at justine.roberts@greatmoor-jun.stockport.sch.uk
