Pastoral Support

About Our Pastoral Support

At Woodhall, we pride ourselves on having an amazing team of trained practitioners who support our children’s personal development, behaviour and welfare. Their work enables children who experience barriers to learning to feel confident, happy and safe in school, and therefore able to access and enjoy all that the school has to offer.  

Led by Mrs Colleen Ardley, our Children and Families Support Manager, the Pastoral Support Team work alongside class teachers and other support staff to offer a range of targeted ‘early help’ interventions. We actively promote resilience and positive emotional wellbeing across the school, and as a result, children are confident that any issues they may experience that worries them will be dealt with quickly and sensitively.
