What is the pastoral, medical and social support available in the school to ensure my child’s overall well-being?
At Wade Deacon we believe that all pupils are entitled to a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum. Pupils are valued equally, regardless of ability and encouraged to exceed their potential. The achievements, attitudes and well-being of all pupils are important and practical steps are taken to account for pupils’ varied life experiences and needs. As an inclusive school, all our vulnerable pupils are known to staff.
Members of the Senior Leadership Team greet and welcome pupils each morning. This ensures a smooth transition between home and school each day.
The class teacher has overall responsibility for the pastoral, medical and social care of every child in their class. If further support is required the class teacher liaises with the Progress Leader for further advice and support.
The school has a team of Learning Mentors, who work under the direction of the Leader of Care, Guidance and Support with pupils who require emotional support.
All classrooms have a poster informing pupils which members of staff are available should they require emotional support.
