Mentors at St Paul's Academy



The mentors play an integral role in the life of both students and staff at the Academy. Our mentors work closely with students to help them with the following:

  • Emotional issues
  • Behavioural concerns
  • Bullying
  • Restorative work
  • Mental Health


Our mentors also work closely with XLPCitizens UK and Headscape and these organisations provide our students with various opportinities from being a student mentor to going on to trips to Africa and Bulgaria to do voluntary work and take part in activities that will improve their lives and widen their horizons.

SEND Documents




Students with special educational needs including those with more complex needs are included in all lessons. They are supported in the classroom alongside their peers by subject specialist teaching assistants.   Teaching and support staff are made aware of students’ needs and are provided with appropriate advice and support strategies by the SEND team. Students are not withdrawn from lessons unless they are receiving specialist intervention from an outside agency e.g. physiotherapy.  The needs of students with physical disabilities are met by specialist SEND support staff. As far as possible we do not advocate a one to one support policy.

Working with External Agencies

St. Paul’s SEND Department also works closely with the following agencies:  Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Greenwich MOVE Programme, Educational Psychology Services, Greenwich Sensory services (both hearing and Visually Impaired), ASD Outreach, School Nurse and Children’s Services.  Work ranges from one to one or group therapy sessions to strategy meetings and work with families. When students reach KS4, SEND staff provide Life Skills support though links with other subjects. The Head of Additional Needs oversees the provision of support given to students with additional needs across the academy.
