Pastoral Support

King's Wood is heavily invested in providing high quality pastoral support.  All teaching and learning staff give pupils encouragement to develop resilience, self -esteem, confidence and self-regulation and to promote positive behaviour choices.  This is underpinned by our Growth Mindset philosophy.


Where pupils may need a bit more help, we have trained members of staff including:

  • Assistant Head Teachers (Mrs Martin for KS1 & EYFS and Mr Hickey for KS2)

  • Inclusion Coordinator (Mrs Kendrew)

  • Learning Mentors (Mrs Bower & Miss Arnold)

  • Key Worker (Miss Spencer and Mrs Bashir)

The support offered ranges from informal support as and when needed to more structured support including:

  • Nurture Group (Cherry Trees in Year 1 which is followed up in Thinking Space in Year 2)

  • Young Carers support group

  • Play therapy

  • Friendship groups

  • 1:1 pupil mentoring

  • In class support

  • PRU involvement (Pupil Referral Unit - there are specific criteria for referral to the PRU)


The support is dynamic and flexible - we allocate time and resources to fit around children's needs.
