Safeguarding and Pastoral Team

At The Meadows Primary Academy we want everyone involved with our school to feel well supported. We believe that good pastoral support focuses on nurturing the individual needs of each child. We aim to build trusting and empathic relationships with all our pupils and their families.

Our safeguarding and pastoral team is made up of dedicated professionals. This includes our Headteacher, Deputy Head, Assistant Headteacher (Pastoral) and SENCO. Together our team works with children so they can lead fulfilling and balanced lives at school and beyond.

All our staff model to students how to look after themselves and others; encouraging them to seek help, support or advice whenever they need it.

Pastoral care underpins personal development and we know from experience that with outstanding pastoral care, students feel they belong and their self-esteem is able to flourish because they feel valued and cared for.

Supporting the pastoral needs of pupils sometimes involves working with external agencies. In these situations we ensure that a confidential, professional, non-judgemental and sensitive service is provided.

 If parents have a concern or worry, then it important that this is shared immediately. We always listen to concerns and take action; however small the worry may seem. We work with a range of partner agencies to ensure our children and families have access to external partners including:

  • CAMHS Mental Health Support
  • Stoke On Trent SEND services (including SEMH specialists)
  • Dove Counselling
  • Education welfare
  • Speech and Language service
  • Community police
  • Fire service
  • VIP Emotional Coaching
