Pupil Mentoring

Our trained Year 6 Peer Tutors met this week with all pupils from Year 1 to Year 5 to continue the school's successful and informative Pupil Mentoring programme. As always, individual pupil outcomes will be shared with you via your child's Pupil Profile. The school also looks for trends in data at an individual, cohort and whole school level to help guide and support pupils' well-being. Where concerns are identified, the school intervenes promptly to address these. As you will see from the responses to the key statements below, pupils report overwhelmingly positive attitudes towards themselves, staff and friends, have a strong sense of belonging and are proud to be part of the school.
