We recognise that from time to time pupils and families need additional support and we can access this from our Pastoral Support Worker or Helping Hands team (see below), school nurse, The Parent Partnership, Our Parent Support Worker and specialist organisations such as Childline, Cruse Bereavement, First Response, Staffordshire Safeguarding Children’s Board and CEOP.
You can gain access from the links below or contact Mrs Morris for further help.
Our staff have a kind and caring ethos and we aim to work with our children, parents and wider community to make our school a safe and happy place to learn.
The key to support is good communication and our door is always open. We can hold special meetings to access support. A CAF meeting (Common Assessment Framework) is a meeting where we talk and complete an action plan of help. We can also access funding for special circumstances. Your requests are confidential and will be treated with respect and care.
If your child needs to talk to an adult in school then class teachers and TA staff are here to help. Our school nurse is sometimes available and Childline posters are on display in school.
For further support please e-
or arrange a meeting via the school office.
