Mentors

At Barons Court, our year six pupils apply for prefect roles that they are specifically interested in and the roles that they feel they can make a difference to across the whole school, once appointed. A mentor is one of the prefect roles and as a mentor the children work both internally; supporting our school community, and externally; supporting people in our local area. 

 

The 2021-2022 mentors are: Edli, Gosia, Charisse, Samuel, Ihsan, Maggie, Betty. 

The mentors are very passionate about making a difference to many people in our community both inside and outside of the school gates. They are looking forward to engaging with the nursery children and supporting reading in Phase 2. The mentors will be going into the Nursery twice a week to play with the children and to support them with learning new skills. They will also be spending time exploring books with the children in Phase 2 and supporting them with their use of phonics to read new words. 

 

The mentors also recognise that we have so many great care homes in our local area who work very hard. They would like to support the care homes across Westcliff and will be doing this by sending them video messages, stories, songs and activities this year. We are sure that the residents will really appreciate the thought and consideration and will enjoy virtually seeing the children regularly. The children will also be continuing to write to local residents in our area to let them know that we are thinking of them. 

  

This year the mentors are also looking to support schools in other countries. They will be setting up links with partner schools across the world and are looking forward to learning about different cultures, languages and ways of life. 

We are very proud to be committed to make a difference to people around us. 

 

At Barons Court we also have mentors for our staff and Mrs Jones has her own Year 6 mentor. Ellie is responsible for counting the house points so that these can be celebrated in assembly each week along with handing out attendance prizes, golden leaves, birthday cards and certificates - which we know all of the children enjoy receiving. At Barons Court we are all encouraged to help one another and this is an important role within the school, supporting both the Headteacher and the children on a weekly basis. 

Within our school all children are encouraged to take on the role of mentors caring for each other and all members of our wider school community. Pupils have recently presented to the Trustees and we now have two new members of our school community - Nibbles and Munch. They were born on the 16th May 2021 and are Lion Lop rabbits (half lion head and half lop). Nibbles is the extremely fluffy one and Munch has a touch of grey. All children within school have been trained to look after our latest members of the family and support with all visits needed at the vets. They are very much part of our school community.
