Our children come to us as unique seedlings; our dedicated staff nurture and protect each of them, giving everyone the best chance to spread their branches and stand tall.

At Rushmore we prioritise the health and well being of all members of our community.

Learning Mentor Team

Our staff are trained to identify when children are showing signs of struggling either socially or emotionally and we have systems in place to ensure children get the right support at the right time.

We have a strong learning mentor team, who have been trained in mental health first aid, to whom staff refer children. The learning mentors will assess a child's needs and put in place a pastoral support plan and liase with teachers and parents/carers to ensure timely, child centred support is provided.

Some of the interventions which learning mentors run include:

  • Well-being groups
  • Circle of friends
  • Zones of regulation
  • Friendship groups
  • Playground engagement support
  • Reflection groups

Parents are kept well informed about how their children are doing if they have been targeted for pastoral support and home school cooperation is valued.

Our learning mentors take a very active role in managing the playground, training staff in supporting and engaging in positive play.
