Key Information  »  Learning Mentor


I would like to introduce myself as the Learning Mentor in school.  I have 20 years of experience working throughout all Key Stages at Calverley Parkside. 
My role is to support all our children and their families.


I will be working with children, parents/carers, staff and outside agencies to provide the best solution for children who are experiencing problems to overcome any barriers to learning they may have.  I will listen to children, offering support and practical advice in order for them to achieve the best they can whilst at Calverley Parkside School.

I can offer one to one support or small group work on a short or long term basis which will be tailored to meet the needs of the children concerned.


I am available and happy to meet with parents/carers to discuss any difficulties and plan a way forward. This may include:

  • Supporting children with behavioural problems.

  • Supporting attendance.

  • Supporting difficulties with friendships.

  • Supporting with problems in or out of school which may affect their work.

  • Supporting after a long absence.

  • Supporting parents/carers – I am a good listener and am here to help, not judge in any way.

By supporting children in this way, we can work towards:

  • Increased confidence and motivation.

  • Better social skills and friendships.

  • Improved attitude and behaviour – both in and out of school.

  • Improved attendance and punctuality.

  • A more positive attitude towards school.

  • More effective communication between parents, carers and the school.

I am available in school on a daily basis.

If you would like to arrange to speak to me about any specific concerns or just for an informal chat to say hello, please do not hesitate to pop in and see me.  If I am unavailable, I will get back to you as soon as I can. If you would prefer a more specific appointment please ring on the school number.


I look forward to meeting you.

Anne Stark
