What is the role of the Play Mentor?

Playwork Mentors are play professionals who can help coach and guide lunchtime supervisors once the Scrapstore PlayPod has opened. Their role is primarily to support the lunchtime staff with the new dynamic the loose parts create in the playground and enable them to implement new organisational procedures such as tidying away and refill procedures. They also model sensitive interventions that extends and supports children’s play and encourage this with the staff team. Over the course of the four weeks they encourage regular reflections and feedback and help maintain links and communication with the other aspects of the school community.
