A child may at any time experience difficulties in their personal and social circumstances which impair their ability to learn. Our pastoral system includes support for pupils at vulnerable times, such as illness, bereavement and family breakdowns. At these times we offer mentoring or counselling provided by school staff or external experts.

Parents are advised to share concerns about home circumstances or medical matters which may affect their child’s work or behaviour in school. Any discussions are confidential and dealt with in a caring manner, only involving other staff or agencies if appropriate.


Parent feedback:
After being dealt the most unfortunate set of circumstances within a very short space of time, the support and care myself and my children have received and still do from Julie has been more than we could have ever wished for. She has listened, supported, brewed up, handed out tissues where necessary and has just been an absolute rock. Just the knowledge that my children have her support at school when I can't be there for them means the world to me and I will never forget the support that Julie and Greave has given us!


After myself and my children had to deal with several bereavements of close family members, the support we received from members of staff was amazing. Every member of staff treated the children (and myself) with fantastic care and I felt the door was always open if we needed to talk. Our individual needs were taken into account and not only were our feelings taken into consideration but the children had fantastic resources such as books about bereavement, and information to read which helped immensely
