This opportunity will give you an amazing experience as a Graduate Primary Learning Mentor with all children in this warm and welcoming primary school in Islington borough. You will primarily be supporting this school to ensure that the aspirations and confidence of the children are raised and the school visions and values are implemented each day. Many of the children in this school are from what is considered a disadvantaged background and come into school with low levels of confidence, self-esteem and literacy and numeracy.
You will be given all relevant training needed to deliver the curriculum and implement strategies to maximise the outcomes for their children who need additional support due to SEN and/or EAL.
In this role, you will be working alongside teachers to offer support with small groups of children and on a 1:1 and small group basis. Most children have an individual learning and support plan that you will follow, however you will have the flexibility to implement behaviour and learning strategies that you feel will really make a difference.
You will need to have the ability to build rapport with children, staff and parents at time. You will need to have a minimum of a 2:1 degree, preferably in a core subject or Psychology. It is essential that you have some transferable experience from university or voluntary roles, but this doesn’t have to be in a school setting.
The School is rated as Ofsted Good and is a hub of the community, where it supports not only the children that attend the school, but also the families and friends of the community who bring up these children. It has an excellent reputation within the community and has a focus on achievement and growth. All current staff have a passion to support new staff on their career move and progression and have an excellent track record with graduates.
