​Family Mentor

Hello, my name is Alison Hughes...

I am the Family mentor at Tortworth School. I work within the school to help children and families with any difficulties they may be experiencing. My role is to encourage both pupils and families to overcome challenges and any barriers to effective and creative learning, both inside and outside school.


In school I support children, either individually or in small groups, promoting positive behaviour, building self esteem and confidence.


For families I offer someone to talk to in confidence as well as practical support. I also work and liaise with external agencies as and when required.


Should you wish to contact me, I’m in the playground Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings before registration and most of those days at home time. I also run a lively coffee morning every other Wednesday from 8.45-9-45 held in class 4. Everyone is welcome, including young children. I’m also contactable via email at alison.hughes@tortworthprimaryschool.org.uk .
