Pastoral Support Systems
We have a range of pastoral support systems in place that work alongside the SEND support we offer pupils. We have a Pastoral support co-ordinator who works with a team of other members of staff in offering a wide variety of support services for children. These range from Nurturing Play support, one-to-one Pastoral Support sessions, Family Support sessions, Expressive Art sessions and Sports Skills session. They also liaise with external support services such as Music therapists and CAMH counselling services. Many of these sessions use spaces in the school specifically designed as a highly welcoming and suitable place for such work.
Referrals for these support sessions come from class teachers and a panel of senior staff allocate appropriate support for the varying needs of the children.
