Working with schools

Our School Mentoring Services allow us to support young people with mentoring and wellbeing guidance through the school day and at the place of education

School Mentoring Services

With the same approach as the 1-2-1 work with Headlight peer support sessions, we offer  1-2-1 mentoring and guidance at secondary schools through the school timetabled day. These sessions are for school years 7-13.

We work with the school wellbeing teams to ensure that this support is correct for that young person and as above staff use their expertise to undertake comprehensive ongoing assessments of young people to identify activities that best meet individual needs. Each young person has an individualised action plan with goals around better managing their mental health, developing their skills and confidence and setting targets around education, volunteering and employment.

We also support the transitional need of those children in year 5 and 6 who are preparing to move up to secondary school. If you would like to know more about any Action East Devon transitional workshops at your school please contact us

Action East Devon also support teachers with training and guidance to better support their classes with their wellbeing and mental health
