Mentoring

Many students benefit from having a mentor during their time at Parkwood Academy and is usually the students’ Form Tutor. There will be a number of one-to-one meetings with their mentor each year with parents invited to attend Academic review events on a regular basis.

The mentor meetings are short, focused on achievement and backed up by assessment information. The key role of these meetings is to ensure that students are on track at all times and know where they are doing well and where they need to improve. Some students may receive additional mentoring for specific purposes.

As part of our drive to develop leaders of the future, a number of our students will take on mentoring roles as they progress through the Academy. In their role as peer mentor, students will offer support and advice to younger students in the Academy, contributing to our welcoming and inclusive learning environment.
