Our school has a Pastoral Care Worker who works 7 hours per week. They have a background in social work and their role is aimed at supporting and promoting student wellbeing at our school. Examples of how the Pastoral Care Worker supports students at our school include assisting SRC fundraisers, running lunch time activities for students and helping with various class activities. If needed, they also act as a support person to assist students with personal/social needs where appropriate. Student involvement with the Pastoral Care Worker is voluntary and parents are able to request that their child not engage with the Pastoral Care Worker if they desire.
