Work of the Pastoral team
The Pastoral Support team are responsible for a range of matters across the school. Students may visit Pastoral Support for any issues facing them either inside or outside of school. We work alongside students; staff and parents/carers to support students throughout school to achieve their desired outcome and help overcome any barriers to learning.

Mrs Yvonne Haynes - Emotional Literacy Teaching Assistant
Most of us experience times in our lives when it is difficult to cope with life's pressures. The Emotional Literacy Teaching Assistant (ELSA) supports students who are finding it difficult for whatever reason to overcome any learning barriers i.e. anxiety, bereavement, anger, lack of confidence etc. This could be in a small group situation or in private one to one consultations. Parents, carers, teachers and students are all able to refer.
We can provide help in the following areas:
- Emotional, Social and Behavioural support
- One to one counselling
- Anger Management
- Young Carers
- Working with disadvantage families, supporting parents
