Learning mentors

Hello, my name is Karen and I am the Learning Mentor for Woodfield Primary School I am looking forward to building good working relationships with Woodfield children and staff.


I have been a Learning Mentor for 8 years with Plymouth Excellence Cluster (PEC) working to remove barriers to learning such as self esteem, friendships, social skills, concentration and supporting transition between classes and Transition to Y7 in order to boost children's self esteem, happiness & and to contribute to making an impact on the child's learning in class.


I am passionate about working with children and over 20 years I have held a variety of roles including being Teaching Assistants and 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 Woodfield's Learning Mentor in this exciting new role and working for the LAT.


If I am working with your child, I would be very happy to meet with you so I can introduce myself & my role. I can be contacted via the school office.
