Pastoral & family support team
At The District CE our Pastoral and Family Support team take a holistic approach to working with children and families. To best support children’s personal development, behaviour and welfare our team includes:
Julie Clewes – Deputy Headteacher and SENCO
Sue Swift – Safeguarding and Extended Services Lead
Donna Barker – Pastoral Support Lead
Karen Knox – Senior Learning Assistant
The team use a range of strategies, tools and resources to support children’s emotional health and well-being, they help to remove barriers to low attendance and reduce persistent absence. We also work in partnership with other providers and services to meet the needs of our pupils.
Members of the team work with small groups and individual pupils to support the development of positive attitudes and learning behaviours, and to support each child’s emotional health and well-being. Parents and children are supported through EHAT assessments, delivery plans and reviews.
Further details about our pastoral team can be found on our information leaflet/
If you would like to discuss the needs of your child with a member of our pastoral team please contact us on 01744 678250, or call into the school office.
