Assertive Mentoring is designed to ensure that each child achieves their maximum potential in all aspects of their education. Assertive Mentoring is a fully supportive system which will be offered to approximately 25% of Year 11. Each student chosen for the programme will be allocated a senior member of staff who will act as there Assertive Mentor who will meet regularly with students throughout the academic year.
The programme involves 3 key elements:
- A mentoring system designed to ensure each child on the programme gets the best results they are capable of getting – not just reaching their target grades.
- A monitoring system to help students identify where they need to improve and how to get there
- A supporting system to give students more help and guidance in the most important year of their education to date.
