St Gabriel’s Catholic Primary School Pastoral Support
Safeguarding Manager - Mrs Ashurst
The Safeguarding Manager works closely with families to help them give full support to their children’s education. At St Gabriel’s we develop good relationships with families in order to involve them in their children’s learning.
Our aim is to identify any concerns or issues at the earliest possible opportunity and remove any barriers to learning which may be preventing our pupils from reaching their potential. We respond as quickly as possible to any issues and ensure that difficulties are discussed and resolved in the best possible way. Practical assistance, such as helping families access support from external agencies also forms part of the pastoral work.
Mrs Ashurst commonly offers help and support in the following areas:-
Child Protection – prevention, protection and support
Attendance and punctuality issues
Family support – this can be a vast range of issues and support
Emotional help (including anger management and counselling)
Links to specialist external agencies when needed
A listening ear for children and their families
Medical issues/ support
Transition between Key Stages, especially into Primary and High School
Bereavement or other loss
