The mentoring programme provide support and guidance to young people who have a genuine interest in sport. The mentors will help guide behaviours to learning in order to support effective participation, enhance learning, raise aspiration and achieve full potential.

Schools will identify young people who are not maximising their potential specifically in the following areas:

    • Not applying themselves academically,

    • Gifted and talented in sport

    • Young people with behavioural or confidence issues

The mentoring programme will work with 4 children per school from either year 5 or 6, with 6 contact sessions which will take place once each term. The sessions can be done in pairs or as a group. More session can be available to schools upon request. The sessions cover topics such as;

    • Growth mindsets

    • Healthy eating

    • School work

    • Hobbies

    • Attitude and body language

    • Confidence and self-esteem

    • Anger

At the end of each session, pupils will create a pledge to achieve by the next session to aid them on their journey. After each session, mentors will send out a report including a general overview, concerns, targets, interest of the child and any additional comments. All our mentors have attended courses and received training from well-being and mentoring workshops around the county to advance their knowledge and gain more interactive and mindful resources to use within the sessions.
