Parent Pastoral Support Resources

Hello everyone, I'm Mrs Laurence

 

 

I am sure like me, you are looking forward to a fresh, back together again new year!

If you are a Puffin, I cannot wait to see you on your first day of school.

 

 

There are useful links that will stay on the page, also resources and ideas that will be added to or changed regularly, so please check in from time to time.

Scroll down and take a look smiley

 

 

If you have a particular concern or change with your child or within your family that you would like to make us aware of or to talk through, you can contact myself either by telephone or email

Telephone: 02392 694412  Email: admin@gatcombepark.portsmouth.sch.uk 

Leave your name, your child's name and their class, asking for a telephone appointment, and I will contact you. 

This way you can talk confidentially with myself (Mrs Laurence - Pastoral Lead).

 

 

 

Our children's well being! 

Below are some links that may support your child when they are struggling with sleep, relaxation and regulating emotions.
