Assertive Mentoring and Going Green

At Bishop Ellis, Assertive Mentoring (or Going Green) involves all children and all staff, all of the time.  It is high status, driven by the teaching team and is the central activity to drive forward school improvement and pupil achievement. Assertive Mentoring is a process rather than an activity.  It is a collective term for the key processes of our school's work:


Its key components are:


  • School Self Evaluation
  • Data analysis
  • School improvement planning
  • Target Setting: long, medium and short term
  • Pupil Tracking
  • Intervention and support systems
  • Monitoring
  • Performance Management systems


Its key outcomes are:


  • True Assessment for Learning
  • A personalised curriculum
  • Raised standards for all

This is an example of a form used in our termly positive assertive mentoring discussions with each child. Your class teacher will discuss each of the criteria with your child at the start of term so they fully understand what is expected of them. If the child 'goes green' in all criteria, they will be rewarded. Termly treats have ranged from clay modelling to Italian cooking sessions.
