What is coaching?

Learning coaching is a service in school which provides coaching, mentoring and support for all learners.

Coaching is provided to learners and can take the form of 1-1 or group coaching mentoring sessions. It is primarily to support learners going through every day school life, the GCSE process and career planning. The mentoring sessions center on target setting and monitoring of progress. Developing revision strategies, understanding and using a range of study skills as well as promoting lifelong learning tools such as planning, organising and time management.

Coaching can provide motivation and ideas to support and develop pupil's future learning plans. Sessions address barriers to learning. Help is given with revision and how to make a time table which is achievable and realistic. Therefore ensuring that revision sessions become interesting and interactive rather than boring and dull, resulting in revision not being done.

Where does coaching take place?

Coaching takes place in D4a for Year 7 10

Coaching for Year 11 takes place in the HOY Office.
