Pastoral Support

If you are worried about your child's behaviour at home or happiness at school, you may find the following information useful.

Our pastoral lead is Ms Elliott. If you need to contact her at any time please make an appointment at reception or call school on 01623 480440. Alternatively you can send a message to the school office on and she will get back to you.


She is able to answer questions on SEND and pastoral needs, find you information on support available and coordinate support from different services. If you are worried or finding things difficult, she is here to listen and to help. 


If you are a Year 2 or Year 6 parent in particular, and are worried about transition between schools, please contact Ms Elliott as soon as possible to discuss what support we can provide.

We are able to offer a wide range of support including -

  • Bereavement
  • Impact of divorce
  • Anger
  • Night time bed-wetting
  • Friendships
  • Attachment
  • Trauma
  • Attendance / Punctuality


If you are in need of support for any reason, please ask and we will do our best to help you. We support the whole family not just the children in our care.

Changing schools can cause anxiety and stress for parents and children alike. The above information may help you and your child explore your worries together. As always, let us know if we can help you.
If your child is worried about Corona Virus or has questions the above book might help. The Nosy crow website also has other useful publications.


We use a wide range of resources to support children including -

  • MOTIONAL (to identify the core reasons for behaviours)
  • ELSA
  • Social Stories
  • Books
  • Online clips and pictures


The whole school is involved in Every Amazing Breath / Take 5 to support calm breathing techniques. At break times our Sports Leaders, Play Leaders and Health Mentors are available to support children.
