The Learning Mentor

I am Mrs McCarthy. I am support staff with years of experience working in primary schools and other settings. My main aim is to break down barriers to learning and to support wellbeing. I want every child at Southglade to be happy and safe in their school. I offer one to one sessions, group sessions and specific interventions that enable our children to become confident, happy students.

Some of our interventions include anger management, anxiety, friendships, confidence building and supporting with bereavement and loss. Some children just want someone to talk to.

I am trained in Mental Health First Aid and as an Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA), which means I can offer specifically planned interventions to children who need emotional support.

I can be found in the ELSA room near the KS2 hall. Or I can be found in BIO club at lunchtime.
