Ashton college has great academic and pastoral care for the students and teachers these are as follows..... Any more queries more information is on the Ashton college web page, on the T drive or go down and ask at the den. MENTORING What is Counselling?

Counselling is talking to a trained person about anything that is on your mind
or causing you a problem. It may be easier to speak to an independent person
without worrying someone you know well.

A counsellor will be able to listen to how your world is for you without judging you. She will work hard to understand you and help you to help yourself. How can Counseling help your students?

They may feel better just to tell someone what's bothering them and
know that someones listened and understood them.

They might want to change something in their life, sort out a problem or make a decision. A counselor can help them work through this without
telling them what to do.

Only they know what is right for them and through counseling they will be able to make decisions for themselves. Who is the Counsellor?

The counsellor's name is Sue and she works
independently from the rest of school, using
a quiet, private room near reception. What do people talk about?

Lots of things. If something is important to your student or making them unhappy then this is a good reason to advise them to see the counselor.
They might have problems at home, at school or with their friends.

They may know what is making them unhappy or they may feel distressed without knowing why.
The counsellor will help the student try and solve their problems. How do they get to see Sue?

Both Campuses
Students at both campuses can email Sue,
email details are on the Ashton college web page.

Ashton Campus
students can drop in to see Sue to find out more about counselling and to see if she could help.
Sue will be at The Den - situated between reception
and the dinner hall - Tuesday and Friday break-times. What is mentoring?

Mentoring is a discussion between two people.
The discussion will be confidential, but the mentors cannot promise to keep it to themselves if there is a child protection issue.

If the mentor does think the case is a child protection issue they will inform the student that they are passing the case on to the school's Child Protection manager, Miss Parkinson.

The Child Protection manager will not tell anybody else in school about their case, neither will their mentor. What can I talk to my mentor about?

Your students can talk to your mentor about anything; homework, bullying, friends and family,
or anything that's bothering them in school or outside of school.

Their mentor will try and give them their best advice and will try and put their self in their situation, or they will use their experiences to give them the best answer.

If their mentor doesn't have a suitable response to their problem and the student gives them permission, they will ask another mentor/ mentor manager for some advice about how to help them. What will the mentor do after they have spoken to the student?

After they have spoken to their mentor, the student will fill in a form, to explain what they have spoken about in their meeting and if they were satisfied with the answers they received from their mentor.
Nobody will read this form unless the student allows them to.

Also their mentor will have to fill in a form which indicates what was spoken about in the meeting and how they felt about the issues discussed in the meeting. When will the student be able to see their mentor?

The student will be allocated a certain day, which will be Monday or Thursday, depending on the suitability for them and the mentoring programme.

If they wish to see their mentor any other time during the week or just someone to speak to, they will have to visit Room 8 at Lunchtime on Wednesday.
