Assertive Mentoring

Our Assertive Mentoring scheme helps all children understand exactly what they need to do next in order to make progress in their learning. We adopt a 'stage not age' approach for Spelling, Grammar and Maths in order to provide children with focused activities at their own level. As with many of our lessons, pupils self-select levels of challenges, which they feel are appropriate. Our skilled staff circulate and monitor, to ensure that pupils select the right challenge for them. 
We find this approach, when allied to our focus upon learning behaviour and joint Pupil/Parent/Teacher consultations has great benefit for our children. The scheme includes some use of colour-coding, whereby pupils and teachers use pink and green to evaluate both academic progress and wider learning development. These colour codes form a key part of our termly discussions with both children and parents.
If you have any questions regarding Assertive Mentoring, please ask your child's class teacher who will be happy to help.
