Dear Parent/carer,
 
Hello,
 
It has been a while since I sent out this letter and I felt that for those who do not know me I would like to introduce myself in my role as Key Stage 2 Learning Mentor.
 
I work with children, parents/carers, School staff and outside agencies to provide the best solution for children who are experiencing problems to try and overcome any barriers to learning they may have.  I will listen to children, offering support and practical advice in order for them to achieve the best they can whilst at Rothwell Primary School. I can offer one to one support or small group work on a short or long term basis which will be tailored to meet the needs of the children concerned.
 
I am available and happy to meet with parents/carers to discuss any difficulties and plan a way forward. This may include:-
 
  • Supporting children with behavioural problems.
  • Supporting attendance/punctuality.
  • Supporting difficulties with friendships.
  • Supporting with problems in or out of school which may affect their work.
  • Supporting after a long absence.
  • Supporting parents/carers – I am a good listener and am here to help, not judge in any way.By supporting children in this way, we can work towards:- 
  • Increased confidence and motivation.
  • Better social skills and friendships.
  • Improved attitude and behaviour – both in and out of school.
  • Improved attendance and punctuality.
  • A more positive attitude towards school.
  • More effective communication between parents, carers and the school. 
  • I also run a breakfast club each morning from 8.15am. If you need any further information about this please contact me.
     
    I am available on a daily basis from 9.15 am and also at the end of the school day. If you would like to arrange to speak to me about any specific concerns or just for an informal chat to say hello, please do not hesitate to pop in and see me.  If I am unavailable, I will get back to you as soon as I can. If you would prefer a more specific appointment please ring on the school number or email  andrea.brooks@rothwell-pri.leeds.sch.uk .
     
    In order that I can try and get to know as many parents/carers as possible, could you please complete and return the attached slip and I will try my best to accommodate any suggestions you may have.

    Many thanks for taking time, which is precious to us all, for reading and replying.
     
    Andrea Brooks
    Learning Mentor.
