Pastoral Support for Behaviour: Miss C Orrell          Nurture TA: Miss K Baron

At Leigh St Peter’s CE Primary School, we are committed to providing an attachment and trauma informed environment where all children can feel safe. Children who are securely attached have higher self-esteem and empathy and can deal with stress more effectively so they are resilient to change.  

For all our children we offer compassion and co-operative learning with a caring and supportive adult. For all behaviour every child and adult will receive, calmness, connection, curiosity and co-operation to enable compassionate learning and the building of empathy and esteem for themselves and others rather than merely deterring anti-social behaviour. As a church school, our Christian Values of love, respect, friendship, trust, resilience, perseverance and responsibility are embedded in our school curriculum for learning and behaviour.  

All parents want their children to be safe and happy at school, the importance of pastoral care goes well beyond this. Education and health are closely linked, and recent studies have shown that pupils with better health and wellbeing are likely to achieve better academically. 

Please ring or come and see us if you have any questions or queries.
