He has other roles in school including attendance monitoring, behaviour support, emotional support, managing medical issues in school and some aspects of safeguarding.

He is also here to support parents and can work with parents looking at Early Help Intervention and signpost to support services available to families and to help with Early Help Referrals and assessments.

What is Pastoral Care?

Pastoral care and support is extremely important in our school environment.

It is there to support the physical and emotional welfare of our children providing information, advice and guidance to them and their carers.

Why is Pastoral Care important in school?

Not only does pastoral care support students in their natural progression but also facilitates the development of their self-esteem, social skills and ability to cope with stress.

It is important that children feel safe and valued in their school environment and pastoral care can help ensure this.
