Pastoral Care

During this time of uncertainty and moving forward after the Coronavirus pandemic, we as a school want our families to be aware of places and organisations that can provide support. 

Some of these links may be suitable for children and families but we also realise that adults in families need support too. Please be mindful when clicking on the links as to the appropriateness to each situation.

If there is anything you need, educational or otherwise, don't hesitate to get in touch with us at school. Click the big red button on our homepage to send us a message.
