Valour Youth would like to offer your School our Mentoring Service which is focus on supporting young people who would like to engage in extra-curriculum activities or who are on the brink of exclusion or who required additional support to enable them to achieve at school.
We have found that schools are able to provide mentoring support for their young people via their
Pupil Premium Fund.
Ofsted states: “Schools also commonly said that they used the Pupil Premium to provide a wider range of curriculum opportunities and/or to ensure that money did not become a barrier to equality of access to an enhanced curriculum.” The Pupil Premium: How schools are using the Pupil Premium funding to raise achievement for disadvantaged pupils - September 2012.
We are able to provide:
Social and Emotional ‘impact’ Mentors: Providing a minimum of six, 1 hour’s sessions, for primary and secondary school to on supporting young people who are on the brink of exclusion or who required additional support to enable them to achieve at school. Pupils can undertake 1-2-1 sessions or groups sessions and can be allocated to a year group.
Social and Emotional Wellbeing Mentors: Full-time or part-time members of staff who mentor individual young people at school and then cover playtime and/or lunch-time activities. We also provide home support visits and/or after school activities (evening and weekend support) for Primary/Junior or Secondary School children.
Learning Mentors: To deliver one to one or group sessions with young people for Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4 learners.
Lunch/Play-Time Mentoring support: We offer a mixture of mentoring and lunch time mentoring support to engage and help young people learn during play and lunch-time activities.
Behaviour Mentors: We also deliver a 12-step programme to encourage young people to become career focused (as well as qualification focused).
Sport Mentors: We provide after school sporting activities for Primary/Junior or Secondary School children.
Bespoke Mentoring/Training Workshops: We also deliver a range of bespoke sessions around Peer Mentoring, Behavioural Support, Sexual Health, Gangs Intervention and Parenting Support Workshops, with parents and/or young people. These sessions can be delivered in school, during assembly or after school.
We believe mentoring is powerful personal and career development tool that can enable the mentee to achieve or exceed their life’s goals and aspirations. A Mentor can be a role model, coach, sounding board, voice of reason, emotional support, counsellor, and a trusted resource.
