Welcome to our Pastoral Care support and information page.
Pastoral support is the provision the school makes to ensure the physical and emotional welfare of your child.
Forest School places an emphasis on self-reflection, which equips learners with emotional and social skills that can stay with them into adulthood and permeate into other areas of their life. Forest School can increase a child’s confidence and self-esteem through exploration, problem-solving, and being encouraged to learn how to assess and take appropriate risks depending on their environment.
Bereavement Provision (Rainbows/Muddles and Puddles)
A support group for children who have experienced a significant loss in their lives. This may be due to the death of a loved-one or family breakdown/separation. This intervention helps children cope with their grief and feel less alone.
Nurture groups are in-school interventions focused on supporting the social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD), along with the mental health (SEMH) of children and young people. Nurture groups address the social, emotional and learning needs of individual pupils by providing the necessary help to remove the barriers to their learning.
