Pastoral Support

Welcome to St. Peter's Pastoral Page.


Here you will find useful information to support you and your family's emotional wellbeing. Our school aims to provide the highest quality pastoral care throughout the school.  If you feel that your child would benefit from additional support with their emotional health and wellbeing, please contact Mrs Royle (Pastoral Lead) or speak with your child's class teacher.  We can also assist you with seeking support from external agencies such as Early Help, Children's Services, housing, food banks, parenting classes etc.
