Hi, my name is Joanna Bamber and I am the Family Learning and Behaviour Mentor here at Strike Lane. My job is to help pupils to overcome the social and emotional barriers which may get in the way of learning and positive behaviour.

These barriers could be due to a child’s attendance/punctuality, environment, emotional needs, social and cultural needs or even lack of basic needs. Please see Maslow’s Hierarchy of School needs below :


I can work one to one, with small groups and also in the classroom. An important part of my role is to meet with parents and carers and to help them to support learning and behaviour at home. I meet with a wide range of other professionals and workers in other agencies to make sure everyone is working towards the same goals.

You will see me around the front of school in the mornings and after school if you would like a chat but please do not hesitate to contact either myself or the school bursar with regard to making an appointment. My email address is [email protected] or you can contact me on 01772 632724.
