We have two Learning Mentors and a Family Support Worker at Abbots Langley School. Their principal aim is to support our children and families with any worries, concerns or problems.
Our Learning Mentors provide support and guidance to children who are experiencing difficulties in learning due to social, emotional or behavioural problems or other issues. The Learning Mentors support children to talk through issues that are worrying them, enabling them to better access their learning. They work across the school and liaise closely with class teachers and other individuals as appropriate.
Family Support Worker
Our Family Support Worker acts as a point of contact in school for families in need of support. Key areas of support are to:
Manage, implement and review any support strategies in place for families within school.
Help identify, and address the needs of children and families who need help to overcome
barriers to learning
Help families in the support of their child’s learning and well-being
This role encourages the engagement of the whole family. The aim is to optimise the opportunity for the child to meet their full potential, raise self esteem and reduce anxiety; implementing individual support packages are key to its success.
