Parent Pastoral Support Resources

Hello from myself (Mrs Laurence)!


I hope that the page has been useful to you and your family over the summer break and will continue to offer support throughout our new school year.


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. 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: 

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).
