Pastoral Care

Pastoral Teaching Assistant
My name is Mrs Lockett and currently hold the position of pastoral TA mentor. My role includes supporting children with many different aspects of their wellbeing; this can include things such as grief, parental separation, self- esteem, anxiety and resilience and a place where children can come if they need a safe space to talk. Children can be referred to me via the class teacher so should you have any issues that may need additional support than is offered from classroom and their teacher you can always discuss them with them or myself. After this, the needs are assessed and sessions can be put into place if needed. I am qualified as the Mental Health First Aider and have had additional training in children’s wellbeing.

Pastoral Support

The safety and well-being of our pupils is paramount to everything that we do at Brackenwood Juniors. We aim to support all children with any issues or concerns that they have in an efficient and sensitive manner.
Please contact the school office to arrange to meet the class teacher if you have any concerns that you would like to discuss.
From September 2022, Mrs Lockett will be Pastoral Lead in school. She will support children individually or in small groups to help support a range of concerns including separation, anxiety or bereavement.
