Learning Mentor

Miss Cousins is our Learning Mentor here at Crookesbroom and her role in school is both invaluable and extremely varied!  She works with children and families on an individual basis, within small groups and sometimes with whole classes. She is available for children who need help in having a settled start to the day and those who might have troubles throughout the day. She offers guidance and support to children who are feeling vulnerable and emotional; and helps children to work out differences with their peers.  Within the mentor sessions, children participate in group work to encourage teamwork skills and circle times to build resilience and self–esteem.

Miss Cousins also runs our Solihull Parenting Group at school to support families.
