Pastoral Care

Mrs Kay Sharpe is our Family Link Worker who supports both families and children throughout their time at our school. Mrs Sharpe is often seen as the ‘go to’ person if you don’t want to bother a class teacher or Mr Gwynne. Mrs Sharpe is located in the playground, come rain or shine, each morning and at the end of the school day.

The Family Link Worker also liaises with our Extended Services co-ordinator who organises many of the holiday clubs and parenting courses you may wish to consider at some time. We have receive regular correspondence from this service and will place a link to these when appropriate.

Your child’s attendance is also part of the role of the Family Link Worker, so please, always feel free to contact Mrs Sharpe should you ever have any concerns about your child’s attendance. The school would rather we discuss the matter before it becomes an issue for your child’s education.

 
 
We have been successful in gaining the 'Targeted Mental Health in Schools' silver accreditation for our effective work on managing and maintaining a positive mental health for children, staff and parents.

As a school, we have recognised the importance of improving mental health for children and staff. Mrs Tillman is the lead member of staff for mental health. 

Whilst providing support in school for positive mental health, we have also worked closely with external services to gain a deeper understanding of mental health, strategies and advice. We have key members of staff trained to deal with elements of mental health issues, such as anxiety, bereavement, separation and attachment.
