Our school has a supportive and welcoming Pastoral team. The team consists Of Mrs J Marshall, Miss B Cameron-Leslie, Mrs Robinson, Mr Crozier, Mr Hickman and Miss Cooksley.
The team have built positive relationships with many supporting partner agencies. As a team, we can offer support or sign post you to working with those who can help, these might include, Housing, School Nursing teams, support with debts, Mental Health, Domestic Abuse, local PCSO’s, Fire Prevention Teams, Bereavement and more.
Mrs Marshall can point you to where you are able to receive food parcels and support those that are in more regular need of food parcels. Referrals can also be made to other supporting services that can help such as Baby Basic, Restore and others.
We are looking to be able to offer the earliest possible support for your family before levels of crisis are reached. School can lead on an Early Help plan that allows us to access support and advice from many agencies and act as the point of contact and support in ensuring appropriate services are invited to meetings and action plans are agreed to ensure that support is continuously moving forward.
Early Help plans have several supportive actions that can be addressed, this might also include support due to a parent being a carer, a child being a young carer, someone in the direct family is terminally ill or needing a lot of medical support, a child or family member with a learning/other disability that is impacting on the family, divorce/ separation in the family unit.
If you have anything that you feel we might be able to support you with as a family, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the pastoral team.
