Pastoral Care

The welfare of children is of prime importance. We are therefore vigilant in ensuring that children are happy, secure and progressing well. We aim always to deal with concerns sensitively and constructively, involving parents/guardians wherever appropriate. Likewise we encourage parents/guardians to discuss with staff any issues which are causing them concern. In all instances, the class teacher will be the first contact in helping to resolve any issues. We will always do everything we can to help.

The school works closely with the following professionals:

  • School doctor
  • School dentist
  • School nurse
  • Health Visitors
  • Educational Psychologist
  • Local Authority Advisors,including Special Education Needs
  • Teacher of the Deaf
  • Teacher for the Visually Impaired
  • Speech and Language Therapist

Our staff make a home visit to all children on admission to Minpins Early Years or who are new admissions into the Reception Class. 

Parents are advised to inform the school of any medical history, which may affect the child at school, e.g. epilepsy, diabetes, poor eyesight or hearing difficulties.

It is vital that we have a telephone number should we need to contact a child’s parent or guardian during the day. Please always remember to inform us immediately by telephone or letter if there are any changes to contact numbers or addresses please fill in the change of details form below.
