My name is Karen and I am the Learning Mentor for Prince Rock Primary School. I am looking forward to building good working relationships with Prince Rock children, staff and parents/carers.
I have been a Learning Mentor for 8 years with the Plymouth Excellence Cluster (PEC), working to remove barriers to learning such as: self-esteem, friendships, social skills, concentration and also helping to support transitions. This includes transitions between classes within the school and transitions to Y7 in order to boost children's happiness and to support the child's learning in class.
I am passionate about working with children and during my 20 year career I have held a variety of roles including; being teaching assistant, working in nurseries and children centres.
My interests include going to the theatre, cinema and spending time with friends and family. I am also passionate about reading in my spare time. I am really looking forward to being Prince Rock's Learning Mentor in this exciting new role and working for the Learning Academies Trust.
If I am working with your child, I would be very happy to meet with you so I can introduce myself and my role. It's been lovely to meet some of you already. I can be contacted via the school office.
