Behaviour Mentors

In this section...

We have two behaviour mentors within the school: Mrs Kim Duffin (KS2) and Miss Abi Doble (KS1). Children who would benefit from targeted support are identified through regular analysis of the 3,6,9 and red and yellow card system. Our behaviour mentors then design personalised programmes for the individuals to address the behaviours which have resulted in them being identified.

The mentors also work with children across the school on an informal basis, talking through red and yellow cards and working with groups. In this group work, we aim to use restorative practice to repair relationships. Restorative Practice teaches an understanding of others and gives pupils the skills they need to resolve conflict, build trust and prevent harm. This is turn helps young people express themselves and develop empathy. We are currently embedding restorative practice across the adults who support children at lunchtimes, but, going forwards, we are keen to establish pupil ambassadors too.
