Pastoral Support at Bunbury
At the heart of everything is a personalised approach to each unique individual as part of our Christian Community. The strong family ethos ensures that all children and staff feel valued, respected and grow in self-confidence. Enthusiastic and caring staff with high expectations, demonstrate care of the whole child. Through God’s guidance we encourage each and every child to let their light shine.
Children Let their lights shine in their behaviour in and outside school making the right safety choices and choices that benefit the community and School
The 'Pastoral Support' pages of our website provide parents and carers with a range of information and resources to support all children in accessing their education whatever their individual circumstances and needs. We provide resources to support conditions relating to mental health and well-being, character and values, learning differences like dyslexia and resources to support looked-after children.
At Bunbury, we believe that a child's welfare and learning needs must be met to ensure full access to education. Please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's pastoral needs.
