Our dedicated pastoral team was created to ensure that all members of our school community receive the support they need from us at Bollinbrook. Miss Nikki and Emma work to promote children’s safety and well-being, monitoring attendance and running specific interventions such as nurture groups or social skills groups. Miss Nikki is also our dedicated mental health lead in school.
We believe in creating resilient young people who:
- Seek help when they need it
- Cope with stress effectively
- Have good problem-solving skills
- Are able to manage their feelings and lives
Daily check-ins are an important part of the pastoral care that we offer and are part of the Restorative Approaches that we follow. Each teacher will check-in with all children during morning registration. Class teachers or Teaching Assistants will follow up with any children who may need further support. Additionally, some children have targeted daily check-ins with a named member of staff to support them in school.
