Our successful pastoral care programme means that your child is safe, happy, involved and able to perform to their potential.
If you need to discuss any pastoral concerns then please speak to Mr D Finney or Miss S Flaherty.
Free School Meals
The government have advised Local Authorities that the Free School Meal Vouchers currently in place will not be extended to cover the period of the half term holiday this May.
St Helens Together have prepared weekly children's food parcels in lieu of school meals that can be delivered to the pupils home address.
To access this provision families need to call 01744 676767, pressing option 1 for food enquiries, and specify they are eligible for free school meals.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2020
The topic chosen for this year is kindness, something we can all agree is pretty important in life, right now in particular. Kindness helps bring us together and can act as the glue that binds our communities. By helping our young people see this and encouraging it, we will create a happier, more compassionate world for all of us in the future.
It’s time to celebrate how powerful our kindness is.
Below are some great resources to raise awareness, get us all talking and give us some fresh ideas for how we can show and celebrate our kindness.
Kindness with Zumos – Part of our 70 Day Wellbeing Programme. Today we focus of Kindness.
The Mental Health Foundation - A selection of Mental Health Foundation materials, including some great social media graphics to raise awareness and show support online.
Random Acts of Kindness - A fun site focussing on positive action and experience. All sorts here from virtual tours of the world’s greatest museums, to energetic challenges focussing on this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week topic - Kindness.
Positive Psychology - A whole host of activities for all ages, some fun games and conversation starters all centred around being kind.
