|Meet the Pastoral Team:|
Ann Gibson - Pastoral Team Leader
|I support Sam & Lee in their roles within school and manage the day-to-day running of the Oasis; described as "the hub of the school".
I work closely with Extended Services and outside agencies to support children and their families and contribute to appropriate support packages.
I am also the first point of contact for families new to the area who are in the process of transferring schools.
As part of the School Leadership Team, I can offer an holistic approach to discussions concerning the school and the community.
Lee Hewson- Learning Mentor
|My role is to offer a personalised support service which encourages parents/ carers to overcome difficulties which may impact on the lives and learning of their children. I develop and build links between families and school, provide 1:1 practical and emotional support, signpost families to outside agencies and support transition between Meadowfield Children's Centre and school.
Within school I support children through 1:1 "Time to Talk" sessions and support attendance in Nursery and early years
Sam Parker - Learning Mentor
|My role in school is very much child focussed. I am here to provide support to our children in addressing and overcoming barriers to learning. I deliver specialist group and therapeutic interventions for children around a variety of emotional wellbeing issues, including self-esteem, confidence building, social skills, anxiety and bereavement. I also work on a 1:1 basis with children to offer specific support, as required.
As attendance lead I focus on initiatives and support packages to increase individual and overall attendance percentages. This area was highlighted in our recent Ofsted inspection and is a high priority across the school with many effective strategies having been implemented.
I also support the transition of our year 6 pupils from Meadowfield to High School, including help with application forms, visits and working with Extended Services transition support.
