At Langar Primary School we believe that good pastoral support focuses on nurturing and supporting the individual needs of each child and where appropriate the parent also.
The Pastoral Lead ensures that the emotional difficulties and general well-being are supported so that barriers to learning can be addressed and strategies implemented.
We aim to develop positive relationships with children and their families, responding quickly as possible to any issues to ensure difficulties are discussed and resolved.
We provide a range of interventions to support emotional well- being;
Working with families to make sure attendance is good
Liaising with parents/carers and with outside agencies to best meet children’s needs
A quiet nurturing room for children to feel safe and secure, to calm down or have time out.
Support the children and parents in the playground at the beginning of the school day.
Liaise with teachers and check at the beginning of each day for children needing support.
1-1 ELSA sessions with identified vulnerable children.
Social groups (social and emotional needs, behaviour, friendships)
Worry boxes in each class for children to raise any worries or concerns.
1-1 Play Therapy and Counselling
Recognising achievements and celebrating success in and out of school
