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.
This is Mrs Dawes. It is her responsibility to develop a whole school approach to the support of Mental Health and wellbeing. She supports our staff to make sure they can recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health needs in pupils and know what to do if they have a concern.
Clare McCluskey 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.
