Pastoral Care

At Pennington Infants we aim to provide the highest quality pastoral support throughout the school so that children achieve their best, educationally, socially and emotionally. 

 

The aims of pastoral support at Pennington Infant School

  • To provide support that meets the differing needs of all children so that each child is equipped with the skills to cope with life.

  • To support children to address social, spiritual, mental, emotional and physical needs.

  • To maintain an atmosphere in which children feel secure, are encouraged in their learning, growth and social development and know that they are valued within a healthy and safe environment.

  • To reassure parents/carers their children are being educated in a safe and nurturing environment

  • To work with a range of stakeholders, parents, support staff, outreach agencies and other schools to ensure the continuity and progress of individual pupils.

 

The role of the Pastoral Support Team:

  • To support and work alongside parents in addressing pastoral concerns impacting on their child’s learning and development.
  • To work with staff in ensuring good pupil support and build upon the caring and respectful relationships that exist between staff, pupils and families.
  • To support individual children; listening and talking to children who may need support in a variety of pastoral issues, for example, self-esteem and confidence, bereavement, managing feelings, anxieties/worries, separation and developing social and friendships skills.
  • Responding to situations as they arise within school.
  • Meeting with parents/carers to discuss issues relating to their child.
  • To ‘signpost’ families to outside services for appropriate provision and support.

 

 

How does the Pastoral Support Team work?

The pastoral team meet at least once a month to discuss the pastoral support we have been providing, ensuring that each child and family feels cared for, listened to and has received the best possible support they need.
