Our Pastoral Team consists of hard working and dedicated individuals who take a leading role in offering an extensive wealth of Pastoral support and care to all members of our school community. As part of the support we offer, we believe that a proactive approach with parents and families will further stable all of young people’s engagement with school life. We look to work with families in need of early help, facilitate parent drop in sessions to provide an opportunity for further open communications, signpost families to outside support if required and be the first point of contact for all children and families at the start of every school day.
Our team are consistently monitoring children and young people who have expressed social, emotional or mental health concerns. As well as children who are experiencing difficulties with managing their behaviour or friendships. Targeted interventions are designed and implemented in line with the needs that have been identified through check-ins with children, conversations with parents and family members or information shared with by other school staff. The purpose of our interventions is to help with removing any barriers so that all children can effectively participate in school life.
Our Pastoral Team consists of the following members:
Mrs Smyth – Headteacher
Miss Weston – Inclusion Lead
Miss Greaves – Pastoral Lead
Mr Deighton – Pastoral Lead
Mrs Coverley – Pastoral Lead
If you have any concerns about your child, please be confident in coming to speak with a member of our team at school or our drop in sessions.

Infant Site drop in is on a Monday 14:30-15:00

We often like to target specific topics during the drop in sessions and details of this will be sent out on Class Dojo, however, please feel free to come along to talk about anything – even if it is not related to the topic that week!
