Our Pastoral Offer

At Slade we believe that our children’s well being is a key driver to them becoming successful learners. We recognise that sometimes life can be challenging for our children and their families which can impact negatively on our children. Therefore, we provide exceptional pastoral support to give our children the best possible chances of reaching their full potential and leading happy, healthy lives in which they thrive. We also provide support to the whole family as we recognise this can be key to supporting our children.

Our team work to:

  • Support and meet the individual needs of all children to ensure they thrive.
  • Support children’s social, mental, emotional and physical needs.
  • Support and work alongside parents and carers for the good of the whole family.
  • Prioritise those most in need of support but also ensure intervention for all who need some additional support.
  • Provide appropriate support through working closely with outside/expert agencies where appropriate.

As part of the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership our aim is to ensure that all children experience equityunderstandingbelonging, and love.
