Our pastoral support at Poltair School includes guidance, advice and information to students and their families within our school community, helping with any worries or concerns that may arise in relation to your child’s education, attendance, behaviour and well-being. Our role includes liaising with staff, parents and outside agencies to ensure the well-being of individual students is fully supported.
Areas of support for students include:
- Attendance and punctuality
- Self-esteem and confidence
- Positive behaviour strategies and advice
- Positive mental health/emotional first aid
- Conflict resolutions
- Friendships / Social Skills
- One-to-one mentoring support
- Group work intervention
These are all valuable life skills for which some students may need a little extra support. Some issues may require long-term support, whilst others may need short-term intervention. Within the mentoring programme, identified students can have the opportunity to spend designated time with a trusted adult on a 1:1 basis or within a small group. The benefits of these interventions for students can be improved self-esteem, making and maintaining positive friendships and attitudes, an increase in self-confidence and the ability to manage their own feelings successfully.
Promoting positive mental health and supporting vulnerable children and young people is at the heart of our work. It is embedded in the culture and ethos of the school.
