Job description

Central to our ethos is ensuring that pupils are ready to learn and this is reflected in our Learning Hub. The hub is a central location in the school led by our Inclusion Manager/SENCo and is designed to provide 1:1 and small group support to those children across the whole school who need it.

As a mentor they will provide direct support and guidance in relation to study skills, personal organisation, and revision and examination techniques. We would also want them to run group sessions and workshops for parents at school and advise parents on behaviour strategies and parenting skills.
The successful candidate will asses, monitor, evaluate and record pupil progress and prepare reports as required. As an experienced colleague they would also deliver over work as required.
