Pastoral Care

We aim to provide a caring environment to assist the total development of our pupils. This requires a close and open partnership between home and school. 

On occasions it may be necessary for teachers to discuss their concerns with a child's parents and conversely it would be helpful if parents informed the school of events at home which may be causing anxiety or may alter the pupil's behaviour in school. 

Bereavement­, a new baby or a family upset can cause your child to behave differently just as a falling out with a friend or a worry about schoolwork can cause problems at home.

Home-school communication and partnership is essential.


Family Support 

Our school has a Family Support Worker whose role is to help ensure that all children and their families have the necessary support to help the children to achieve their potential at school and within the community. This includes monitoring attendance, working with parents and working alongside the school chaplain to provide pastoral support.

The Family Support Worker provides a welcoming environment for children and families, having particular regard for those who do not engage with schools.   She can be contacted through the school.
