At All Saints we are committed to high achievement for all, supporting pupils and families in ensuring all children have an entitlement to be educated alongside their peers in their local community. Our strong Christian ethos is visible and apparent throughout the school; adults and pupils have a great deal of respect for each other and relationships are accepting and supportive. As an inclusive community, we are committed to removing the barriers to learning ensuring equality of opportunity is a reality for all regardless of their social background, ethnicity, health or academic ability. We strive to enable each and every one of our pupils to become a confident, secure, independent and resilient learner.
Our SEND and Pastoral Support team consists of Mrs Forghani-Ashrafi (AHT, SEND Team Lead, SENco, DSL), Miss Strachan (Head Teacher Lead DSL), Mrs Helm (Pupil and Family Support Worker, DSL), Miss Akrill (AHT, DSL) and Mrs Kemsley (TA).
This team ensures that children receive personalised interventions and pastoral care, whether it be for their social and emotional needs, special educational needs, disabilities, behaviour, mental health or medical needs. We support teachers and parents to identify and meet the needs of every child, providing opportunities for real-life learning and working with other agencies to ensure the best possible provision for our vulnerable pupils.
At All Saints, we understand the vital role our families play in the well-being and development of their children and the importance of working together as a team which is why we have an ‘open door’ policy allowing parents to meet to discuss any concerns they may have and often hold informal coffee mornings.
