Grendon CE Primary is a highly inclusive mainstream school. Supporting pupils with Special Educational Needs is a very important part of our work and you can read more about this in our SEN Information Report, accessible below.


Pupil Mentoring

The school's Pupil Mentoring initiative has been designed in-house and sits alongside the curriculum to raise the profile of and support children's well-being and mental health. The school believes that children's mental health should be prioritised alongside their academic achievements. Year 6 pupils are trained as Peer Tutors and, each term, work closely with younger children in school..

Children are asked to respond to a series of statements linked to each of the following key questions in bold below. Their response to each statement – yes, no or sometimes – is purely their own view at that moment in time. The role of the Peer Tutors is to carefully oversee this self-assessment, rephrasing statements or clarifying with examples so that it is understood and accessible to all children.
