At St Ursula’s E-Act Academy we believe that good pastoral support focuses on nurturing the individual needs of each child. We aim to build trusting and empathic relationships with all our pupils and their families. We currently have 4 key workers who can provide group sessions and one-to-one sessions. St Ursula’s E-ACT Academy understands the importance of enabling the voice of the child to be heard to promote safeguarding and well being.
Together the team works with students so they can lead fulfilling and balanced lives at school and beyond. All our staff model to students how to look after themselves and others, encouraging them to seek help or support and advice when they need it. Pastoral care underpins personal development and we know that with pastoral care, students feel they belong and their self-esteem is able to flourish because they feel valued and cared for.
Supporting the pastoral needs of pupils may involve working with external agencies. In these situations we ensure that a confidential, professional, non-judgemental and sensitive service is provided.
