Peer Mentors News
We recognise the value that pupil support has in enhancing the social skills, interaction and citizenship amongst children. It also promotes an ethos of responsibility and care for others within the school and provides positive role models. Mentors are selected to support mentees based on their own experiences of developing their learning behaviours and becoming a reflective learner.

Enhancing social skills
Improving educational attainment, while developing positive relationships
