Learning Mentor: Christine Bragg
I am at school part of every day except Wednesday. You can contact me if your children are having any social, emotional or behavioural difficulties and we can discuss what I can do to help.
I run friendship and anger mangement groups at the moment and do 1:1 work on many issues. Children can take part in Seasons for Growth, which is an eight week programme which helps when they have had a significant change or loss, perhaps through bereavement or a family seperation.
I have a talk box outside my room, where children can put their names, if they have any problems that they would like to talk to me about. I am a qualified counsellor.
I do transition work particularly to high school, taking children on an extra visit to Woodkirk or any other school where necessary. I also organise a transition lunch for pupils from all the Morley schools who are moving to Heckmondwike Grammar School.
I run a SHARE group for parents and carers on Fridays at 9am in the staff room. You are all welcome to attend. We have a coffee and a chat and have fun doing an activity, which can be repeated at home with your children. New members are always welcome.
