Family Support

Personal Development and Wellbeing




My name is Caroline Crowder and I am the Senior Learning Mentor at St John’s Primary School.  I am responsible for assisting with safeguarding issues, mentoring pupils, attendance, punctuality and developing relationships with parents and carers.


I work with pupils, families and other professionals, both within and outside of school, in order to assist pupils whose barriers to learning prevent them achieving their full learning potential.


Pupils can be highlighted for mentoring support for a variety of different reasons, including:

  • low self esteem
  • lacking in self confidence
  • friendship issues
  • bullying
  • emotional issues
  • bereavement
  • difficulties at home
  • attendance/punctuality
  • vulnerability


Additionally, I assist families with any issues they may have regarding their own social and emotional wellbeing, signposting them if necessary to agencies who can assist them, such as the parent partnership, children’s centres and healthcare professionals.


If you are experiencing any difficulties with which you would like my support, including attendance and/or punctuality, please pop in to see me or catch me at the gate.
