Junior Athlete Mentoring

One of the main ways of supporting pupils on the Performance strand is through a mentoring system, called the Junior Athlete Education Programme which is part of the Youth Sport Trust’s Work. Pupils are allocated a mentor who will assess the level of support needed, it may be simply to meet with the student once a term to see what has been achieved, or it may be to help organise time out of school for training purposes. The emphasis is on assisting pupils to decide how to balance their school work, training, competing and home lives. Mentors will put the onus on the pupil to see subject teachers themselves where appropriate.

A mentor will gather sufficient information about the athlete to ensure that appropriate decisions can be made to help them in their planning for their academic and sporting commitments. In the initial meeting, a series of questions are asked about the student’s level of involvement, their time commitments, targets or objectives, all of which can be used by the mentor to build up a very clear picture of what the demands on the pupil are.

The kind of support that a mentor can give may be as minimal as a supportive comment when passing in the corridor. Maximum support might involve a ‘case study’ type meeting which involves parents, coaches and teachers.

All pupils on our performance tier have their own mentor who is a teacher at South Nottinghamshire Academy
