All of our pupils, regardless of their learning needs are given a high level of pastoral and social support from the moment they enter school right through to when they leave.
Our pastoral system consists of school teams who are made up of children of all ages from Reception through to Year 6. Each team has team captains and work closely together on school based projects and targets. Teams sit together in assembly and eat lunch together.
Within classrooms class teachers develop very close relationships with each child to ensure that they are happy, secure and ready to learn on a daily basis. We are a small school and work collaboratively as a team to ensure that each child is being the best learner they can be regardless of difficulty.
As a Rights Respecting Level 2 School, we place the UNCRC (United Conventions of the Rights of a Child) at the heart of its planning, policies and practice. The school has a Rights Respecting Ethos, where children are empowered to become active citizens and learners.
Children with medical needs are catered for in the same way with, if necessary, designated people to deal with any physical or emotional difficulty that we can. All staff are trained in Paediatric first aid and one member of staff is trained in the administration of medication within school following the appropriate County guidelines.
Socially we do much to develop our children’s skills. We are a “talking” school and all staff have really close relationships which foster trust respect. In addition to this children within our school support and care for each other to a very high degree. They are also expected to demonstrate high levels of responsibility and pupil involvement which fosters greater self-esteem and confidence.
