At Milton Park Primary School pastoral support is a high priority and we aim to promote the wellbeing and self-esteem of each child: to ensure that each child is happy, secure and encouraged to develop their talents to their full potential.
The Pastoral Support Team consists of a Pastoral Support Manager, Mr Paul Cox, and Learning Mentors, Mrs Andrea Flourentzou-Bell and Mrs Holden.
The team works together to support children and families, in order to ensure that they achieve the best possible experience during their time at Milton Park.
What sort of help can I get from Pastoral Support?
Often it may be that parents want to talk about concerns they have about their child, but support can be offered in many different ways to help you in your role as parents. Here are just some of the ways we have been able to help families:
Our Learning Mentors helps pupils make the most of school life by breaking down barriers to learning. For the child, they are someone supportive to talk to, share successes or disappointments with, or to provide help with practical difficulties or worries. They can also be the link between school and home, or with outside agencies. They can act as an advocate for children and young people and is non-judgmental. They deliver a tailored and flexible approach to meet the needs of those being mentored.
Our Learning Mentors meets with children and young people, usually outside of the classroom, either individually or in small groups in a planned and structured way.
What Can the Learning Mentor Help With?
The Pastoral Support Team are also members of Milton Park Primary School’s Safeguarding Team, supporting the Head Teacher in matters relating to children’s welfare and child protection concerns.
