Pupil Mentors

Supporting pupils at risk of exclusion

Supporting pupils at risk of exclusion with Pupil Mentors can be a proactive and effective strategy to address behavioural and academic challenges. Pupil Mentors are crucial in providing additional guidance, support, and encouragement to help students navigate difficulties. The mentors can provide support within the school setting, at home or online. 

How can an Pupil Mentor make a difference in your School?

Building Positive Relationships 

Pupil Mentors can establish positive and trusting relationships with at-risk students. This connection can create a safe space for students to share their concerns and challenges.

Individualised Support

Pupil Mentors can work closely with each student to understand their unique needs and challenges. Tailoring support to individual circumstances helps address specific issues that may contribute to behavioural problems

Academic Assistance 

Provide academic support to help students catch up on missed work, improve study skills, and enhance their understanding of subject matter. Addressing academic struggles can contribute to a more positive school experience

Behavioural Intervention

Pupil Mentors can collaborate with teachers and school counsellors to develop strategies for addressing challenging behaviours. Implementing positive behaviour interventions and providing guidance on conflict resolution can contribute to a more positive school environment


Maintain open lines of communication with teachers, and other school staff. Collaborate to share insights, discuss progress, and coordinate efforts to support the student both academically and behaviourally

Goal Setting and Monitoring

With our bespoke tuition platform (LEAP), we will assess pupils needs to help deliver the correct programme, which will be monitored throughout the duration. This will foster a sense of accomplishment and motivation

Life Skills Development

Pupil mentors can support essential life skills, such as organisation, problem solving, financial awareness and employability skills which are crucial for academic success and can contribute to improved behaviour
