Learning Mentors at Kingsmead School work individually and in groups with students. They inspire creativity in order to raise aspirations so students can achieve their full potential and become what they envisage. Learning Mentors achieve this by helping students to identify, reduce and overcome barriers to learning.
Learning Mentor: Mr A Sohoye
Student Support Tutors: Mrs E Coss and Ms J Newland
Learning Mentors run daily lunchtime clubs aimed at all students across the years. The various clubs provide a safe place for students to interact and engage in positive activities with their peers.
The clubs are diverse to accommodate the needs of all students.
Examples of projects undertaken by Learning Mentors working with students
Groupwork with year 11 students to go through study skills and various revision and examination techniques such as mind-mapping and mnemonics to enable them to study effectively. Students complete revision and homework schedules to ensure they use their time efficiently. In addition, they identify their learning styles in order to tailor their revision.
Dependent upon students varying needs, we work with them to raise confidence, build up self-esteem, work on transition and address challenging behaviour. Students partake in various activities in the form of role-play, teamwork, voice projection, writing, self-awareness and many more, to bring about the desired change.
Learning Mentor, Mr Sohoye contacted the Enfield Duke of Edinburgh team and under his leadership several students have embarked upon the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award scheme.
