Pupil Mentoring

For any pupils at risk of or who are facing exclusion in schools and where issues relating to cultural background, practices or identity may be significant

Specific Service targets to reduce exclusions among ethnic groups where levels of exclusion are particularly high, e.g. African-Caribbean, mixed heritage and Gypsy, Roma and Traveller pupils

Mentoring takes place alongside work with school staff, parents, and other agencies in order to raise pupils' self-confidence, motivation and achievement.
