Lots of children work with the Mentors in school, our aim is to support you to achieve your very best. We all need a helping hand at times!

We have been very busy working on resources that will help build your skills and we hope that you will have fun participating too.

Please keep popping back for updates!

Meet the Mentors that are based at Owler Brook Primary School and Whiteways Primary School. Our Learning mentors offer support and guidance, they are empathetic and a good listener, encouraging and motivating and there for you when you need someone to listen.

 Meet the team!

I'm Mrs Farmer and work at Whiteways Primary school and I enjoy baking elaborate cakes but also baking with my daughter. I have started running recently to help me stay fit but also as a way to balance my thoughts - exercise is good for that! I encourage you to go out and do more of what makes you happy!

I’m Mr Brocklesby and I work at Owler Brook School. I enjoy singing. This keeps my mind healthy, research proves that singing your favourite song can decrease anxiety, stress and depression. It can also help with memory, concentration and language. So have a go and enjoy!
