Mrs Winder Learning Mentor

Hello, I am Mrs Winder, Torrisholme Primary School's Learning Mentor.


What is a Learning Mentor?

I work within the school offering support to children and families with any difficulties they may be having. I liaise closely with staff in school and with outside agencies.

I am here to listen, offer support and practical advice to help children make the most of their time at Torrisholme Primary School.


How can I help?

I can be part of your child's support network at school, helping with:

  • Attendance and Punctuality
  • Behaviour causing detriment to learning
  • Bullying
  • Problems with developing and maintaining friendships
  • Disrupted home life and family problems
  • Low self-esteem and confidence
  • Children new to the school who need help settling in
  • Children worried about transition to High School
  • Bereavement
  • Support for families


How can I be contacted?

For children- I am available throughout the school day. I can be found in the playground at the start of the day and I am also available at playtime and lunchtime. There is my 'chatterbox' found in the entrance to school (just by the guinea pigs!) where children can put a slip in to say they would like a chat with me. 


For Parents/Carers - I can be found in the playground at the start of the day, please feel free to find me if you would like an informal chat. If you would prefer a more private meeting please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.


Play Leaders -

Our Year 5+6 Play Leaders do a fantastic job of playing and supporting the children at lunchtimes, whilst learning about responsibility and developing important skills for the future.

Torrisholme Tuckers - 

We have a healthy snack bar, serving a wide range of healthy snacks. Our Year 6 children help to prepare and sell the healthy snacks to KS2 children every day at morning break. Children can bring in 20p each day or they can purchase a snack pass for £1.00.

The snack bar serves a variety of foods including: fruit bread, rice cakes, bread sticks, yoghurts, fresh fruit and more!

Kidsafe - 

I deliver the Kidsafe Programme in our school. Kidsafe is a preventative programme to develop a child's ability to recognise unsafe situations and take appropriate action to protect themselves and keep safe. Usually the programme is delivered in Years 2 + 4.

Parents and carers are invited to an information meeting before any sessions are delivered to the children.
