It is really important to have pastoral support, time to talk about our feelings, questions and raise concerns or worries with a trusted adult in school.
We do this throughout the day and week as needed and build it into our PSHE/RSHE curriculum time too.
We also put specialist provision in place, where its appropriate, and we're able,through work with other agencies.
To add to this work we are very pleased to confirm that we have had an offer of support from Sue Taylor over 2 lunchtimes per week. She has offered to give pastoral support to any children who want it, as a chaplain from a non-faith perspective at these times. This simply means she’d like to be another person who’s around to support and be- there for our children when they want it. If you'd like to find out find out more, see the document below.
Ensuring good hygiene routines is still the most effective way we can tackle the spread of germs and viruses, like COVID-19. Please support children's and adults health by encouraging regular and thorough Washing of hands more and the "catch it, bin it, kill it" strategy for those with coughs and sneezes. Thank you.
Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds with soap and hot water.

Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.
