Assertive Mentoring is a whole school approach, in partnership with parents, which looks to support every child in achieving their very best. This system has been very successful while it has helped every child to be clear about the expectations of them from school and home.
Every child will have an individual Mentoring Meeting with a teacher and parent(s), early in each term. At this meeting, detailed information is shared about the children’s progress. Grades, given by the teacher and the child, are shared for achievement and attitude, including behaviour, effort, attendance, punctuality, homework and uniform.
The Mentoring meeting agrees clear individual targets for progress for the coming term and ways are discussed in which home and school can support each other. For those children having more difficulty in making progress, half termly meetings are arranged.
