Pastoral Care

Our pastoral care has been developed carefully in keeping with the individual needs of the children as they progress through the school. As a Church of England school, we work within a christian ethos and a caring and supportive environment.

Examples of specific initiatives in place at school include:

A buddy system -all new pupils in class one have a buddy in class 6 who will look out for them and help them settle in a school

Circle time -structured times to sit with class mates and talk about feelings and experiences

School assemblies, led by the head teacher and Father Ian Blay, from St Wilfrid’s Church, as well as other representatives

Rewards for good behaviour which include showing kindness and consideration to others

Access for parents at all times to the head teacher to address any concerns

Links to school health, social services, and other community representatives
