At Castle Primary School we are lucky to be able to call on the services of our own Pastoral Manager.
Mrs Bright is based in school all day on Mondays and Tuesdays, then Wednesday through to Friday, she works 8.30am - 1pm. She can be contacted via the school office. She is on the school gate nearly every morning between 8:30am and 8:40am, available to parents for general chats, or if more privacy is required, there is a room available indoors.
Our Pastoral Manager is here to offer support for your children with any worries or anxieties they may be experiencing, but she can also offer parents confidential support with issues they may feel are affecting their children. She is able to signpost families to a wide variety of services including parenting groups, the school nurse, counselling and other voluntary agencies if required.
Mrs Bright helps reinforce the nurturing and supportive environment that we provide at Castle Primary School. She is a trained Thrive Practitioner, which is an approach to build resilience in children to help them achieve their optimum learning potential. She is also training to be an Emotional Literacy Support Advisor (ELSA) which is a role that helps break down the social and emotional barriers that some children may encounter to learning.
Please feel free to contact Mrs Bright if you feel she could support your child or your family.
