Martin Primary School

Wellbeing

The wellbeing of our children, their families and our staff is a priority at Martin Primary School.  We have an inclusive, supportive and caring ethos and we ensure that every individual and contribution is valued. 

 

At our school we strive to:

  • encourage children to be confident and resilient learners
  • promote the importance of self-esteem
  • help children develop and maintain friendships
  • help children to understand their emotions and feeling
  • help children feel comfortable sharing their concerns and worries
  • put appropriate support in place for any child in need

Our Learning Mentors

We are extremely lucky to have two fantastic learning mentors who work at the school: Lyn King and Sue Louka.  Sue and Lyn provide ongoing support to help children (across all age groups) with barriers to learning, which stop them achieving their full potential. This may include:

 

  • working with children on a 1:1 basis
  • providing therapeutic relationships, including a 'safe place' for children to express their feelings
  • working with children who may experience issues with confidence, self esteem, anger, friendships, social skills, neglect, abuse, bereavement and transition.

 

We also deal with ad-hoc friendship issues so that this can be kept away from the classroom and learning time and we run a daily lunchtime club for children who find it difficult to be outside for long periods of time.

 

Our leaning mentors are also available to support parents and carers when needed.

External support from outside agencies

If we feel a child is in need of additional emotional support, we work closely with outside agencies to ensure that they receive the help they require.
