The pastoral team: Mr Boughey, Miss Beresford, Mrs Wellings and Mr Moran are all committed to providing a service where children can receive the support they need at the time they need it, this is best achieved when school, children and parents are all working together, building positive relationships and communicating effectively.
We also have a referral system set up in school where teachers, parents and children can all refer themselves to our pastoral team to access additional support, please use link below.
