Pastoral Care And Support

Pastoral Support at Bridgewater Park Primary


At Bridgewater Park Primary School, we pride ourselves on the fact that pupils are happy and enjoy coming to our school. We realise that supporting the pupils from a pastoral perspective is just as important as supporting the pupils academically. Our aim is to ensure that all of our pupils' basic needs are met to ensure that they can thrive in school. 

Chris Boyd, our family support worker, works closely with our SENDCo Adam Owen focusing on pupils who may need further pastoral support. We monitor this on a regular basis and consistently review the support that we are offering to pupils to ensure that their basis needs are met. 

We approach every situation with kindness and go above and beyond to ensure that pupils are safe and happy at our school. There are a number of things that we have put in place to support our pupils here ar Bridgewater Park:

  • Breakfast club.
  • Meet and greet at the gate.
  • Designated support staff for pupils who need further support.
  • Break time buddy support group.

  • Sensory breaks and sensory time.
  • Class circle time.
