At Collaton St Mary Primary School we are committed to provide the highest quality pastoral care throughout the school. All staff work together to help pupils achieve their best, educationally, socially and emotionally.
Every member of staff is dedicated to supporting the emotional health and well-being of all our children and their families. We are all happy to speak to pupils and parents/carers about any concerns they may have. However, we also have a dedicated Pastoral Care Team, led by Ben Nelson-Smith our Head of school along with our Pastoral Support Worker.
Every effort is made to remove obstacles allowing children to be successful, enthusiastic learners and to equip young people with the confidence and skills to be effective members of the community.
If you would like more information about our pastoral care, please do speak to any member of staff. The following web links may also give you guidance:
Our Pastoral Support Worker is supported by Mrs Wendy Parr, our Academy's Head of Safeguarding & Inclusion.
