Learning Mentors

A message from your Learning Mentors

If you have any unwanted wellington boots or 6ft bamboo canes, please could they be donated to Gardening Club.

Portsdown Primary school currently employs two Learning Mentors.

Our learning Mentors are Mrs Jordan and Mrs Blades. Within their role they can help pupils on a 1:1 basis within class or in small groups.

We work closely with the Senior Management team, class teachers, and teaching assistants and outside agencies.

We work with pupils who may be finding school life a little bit difficult, whether it is about friendships, confidence or behaviour issues.

We believe in building strong honest relationships with our pupils and our parents.

We also run after school clubs, these clubs help to build friendships among our pupils they also encourage confidence and self-esteem.

If you would like any more information, advice or simply a chat please feel free to come and talk to us.

Mrs Jordan and Mrs Blades.




We believe that every child at Portsdown Primary deserves a safe, happy environment to learn and play in. However, we are aware that at times differences of opinions can cause upset and confusion. To ease these upsetting times, the Learning Mentors have trained individual children in specific roles such as:

Playground Buddies

Children are trained to help and support others who sometimes find playtime a difficult time.
