Pastoral Support at Holy Trinity
We have identified a number of children who would benefit from a higher level of pastoral support since the pandemic. Mrs Upton is a highly experienced teacher, who has a real strength in this area and benefits greatly from being our SENco and Mental Health Lead. Mrs Sawyer is Holy Trinity's Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) and delivers bespoke one-to-one support and small group work.
The children selected will have a tailored programme, with the ELSA reviewing the children’s progress weekly in tandem with Mrs Upton. We have engaged a full-time Family Support Lead whose role is to support parents in removing obstacles that may affect their child’s learning. Teachers also use Mrs Upton and Mrs Sawyer as a sounding board for any issues which crop up in the day-to-day life of their classroom. Mrs Sawyer and Mrs Upton will notify the parents of the children involved. When your child has an issue that may affect their learning, please talk to their class teacher in the first instance.
