STUDENT SUPPORT

The Learning mentors:

We have two learning mentors; Ms Rochelle Foster (rfoster@fortismere.org.uk) and Ms Kirsty Tibble (ktibble@fortismere.org.uk) who work with students in 1-1 sessions providing support on a wide range of issues from organisational support to anger management. The learning mentors may also observe students, obtain teacher feedback on their mentees and communicate with parents/carers and relevant internal and external colleagues to provide students with the relevant support.

Our counsellors:

Dr Marilyn Allen and Freya Austin are our on-site counsellors and both spend 1.5 days per week supporting students within our school. They work 1-1 with students and also offer a variety of therapeutic groups to students in KS3 and 4 covering issues such as anxiety, promoting positive behaviour and socialisation.
