I’m Glenda Larkin. I’ve worked at BG since September 2019 as a Teaching Assistant and took up my post as Learning Mentor in September this year.
I work with a range of children from across school who may need individualised support to make the most of learning opportunities and to overcome barriers to progress. This can come in a range of forms including social and emotional challenges, recent changes in family circumstances such as parental separation or bereavement or other, shorter- term challenges.
I have a dedicated space and resources in school and I work directly with class teachers, our Parent Support Advisor, Heidi Morgan and our Inclusion Lead, Laura Broomhead to make sure that we build support packages to help children get back to learning as quickly and happily as possible.
If your child is working with me, we will always communicate this with you as parents in order that you can fully understand the reasons for my support and so that we can seek your support for this.
