Meet Our Pastoral Team
Mrs Palmer - Community Support Manager
Much of the work linked to the community is coordinated by our Community Support Manager, Mrs Cath Palmer and the pastoral team. She is the first point of contact for children and parents relating to issues around attendance, transition (eg moving on to high school) or child protection. Mrs Palmer is always available in school to offer help and advice – her expertise being behaviour management!
She is also the E-safety lead and works closely with the computing staff to ensure children are kept up-to date with all aspects of E-safety. Please look carefully at the information found on the E-Safety link from the Parents tab above for further details on E-Safety.
We need our children ready and able to learn in school. So if there is a problem, something that is impacting upon your child’s learning in school, talk to us. If we can help, we will. If we can’t, we’ll try to find someone who can.
Mrs Clegg - Learning Mentor
As Learning Mentor I meet and greet parents/carers and children at both the beginning and end of each day.
I also work closely with the children during the school day, supporting children in class and delivering a variety of groups. This is to help and support children gain the confidence to develop new friendships. I also help the children look at new ways of dealing with conflict when friendships break down. The groups consist of around 4-8 children and a mixture of different years. The groups also offer the children chance to be able to have a voice and share their opinions.
As part of my role as learning mentor I support the children emotionally through out the day either in lessons or on a 1:1 basis, as well as playing outside with them at breaks and lunchtimes.
Once your child is in year 6 I am involved with the transitions from Primary to High school and will support the children with any worries and anxieties they may have to ensure a positive transition for them.
If your child has any worries or concerns please encourage them to come and talk to myself or another member of our school team, so that we can support them and deal with their concern.
