Our Pastoral Team 

We have a fantastic pastoral team who work together to provide support, challenge and nurture for all our children. The team consists of Mrs Wyld (Pastoral Lead) and Mr Brown (Behaviour Support Officer).

Our Pastoral team liaises with teachers and pupils to ensure our pupils' needs are met. Mrs Wyld coordinates our pastoral support and is always on hand to talk to pupils and parents about any concerns they have with welfare or care. Mr Brown is responsible for supporting the behaviours of our pupils around school. He works to increase access to the curriculum for pupils who sometimes find this tricky. 

Our SEND Link Governor

Nicola Todd is the SEND Link Governor. She is responsible for monitoring this important area of school life on behalf of the Westerhope Governing Body. She reports to the full GB but also to the Pastoral Committee where our SEND is scrutinised. These groups are responsible for supporting and challenging our senior staff so that SEND provison continues to develop.
