At St. Anne’s we believe that students will only fulfil their academic potential if they feel secure, happy and cared for within the school environment.
The welfare of the children in our school, is therefore the accepted responsibility of all members of staff.
The House team is led by a Head of House and the team ensures a high level of contact with parents and carers. The House team are there to support you and your child in any pastoral issues that may arise. It is essential that pastoral staff be informed about any changes to health or changes in circumstances at home. In all matters of support and discipline, parents are involved at an early stage and are welcome to contact school whenever there is a concern. The pastoral team are also able to make referrals to internal support and intervention where appropriate. Please contact reception who will connect you to the pastoral team.
Children are placed within a form group, with their Form Tutor having initial responsibility for the social welfare of that group. This includes the monitoring of attendance, punctuality, behaviour.
Your child's Form Tutors are the first point of contact and will deal with the majority of questions or concerns that may arise. The Head of House is there to support you and your child both in terms of their academic progress and for any pastoral issues that may arise.
Where issues arise, we will intervene quickly and work with parents to address any concerns.
We have a full time Inclusion Manager who works within our Romero room. Our Inclusion Manager works with our children to support improved behaviour and provide interventions. Within our inclusion room students are afforded the opportunity to reflect on wrong decisions they have made. Students may also be invited to attend interventions to both educate and support their holistic needs, including healthy relationships, emotional wellbeing, anger management and making better behaviour choices.
St Anne’s pupils benefit from a part time school-based nurse and multiple staff who are trained first aiders. In 2023 we are excited to be able to increase our mental health provision through an NHS programme that has placed a Mental Health Worker in St Anne’s on a weekly basis. Our Mental Health Worker will work with the pastoral team to improve our whole school provision for mental health, whilst also working one to one with targeted students.
