Social, Emotional and Mental Health



I am Mrs Storey and I work as a Learning Mentor at Adel Primary School providing support and guidance to pupils, helping them overcome barriers to learning which may be due to social, emotional or behavioural problems. At Adel Primary School, we believe that supporting the health and well-being of our pupils will assist in improving their academic outcomes.


I work closely with other adults, both within and outside school, to identify and break down barriers, helping children to stay motivated so that they can achieve their best.


Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) is critical to the development and educational achievement of children and young people and research has shown it has important consequences for health and social outcomes in adult life.


After liaising with parents, support within school can cover:

Increasing confidence and self esteem

Transition to high school

Improving attendance and punctuality

Friendships, behaviour and social skills

Support through difficulties at home and at school

Improving relationships with others

Listening and helping them to understand their feelings

Expressing their views



Support may include:

Intervention groups

Targeted individual support

Outside agency input (e.g. Counselling, Educational Psychologist, CAMHS)


We are keen to work in partnership, to support pupils and families, so if you have a concern about your child please do not hesitate to contact me in school or via email at
