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 empathetic relationships with all our pupils and their families. We have a Learning Mentor, Mr Osborn, 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-judgmental and sensitive service is provided.


Supporting Pupils with Medical Needs

E-ACT is committed to ensuring that all students with medical conditions can access and enjoy the same opportunities as any other student and to ensuring that they are able to play a full and active role in school life, remain healthy and achieve their academic potential.

E-ACT will ensure that its academies implement and maintain an effective management system for the administration of medicines to all students in our care in order to ensure that appropriate support is provided to individual students with medical needs.

Please contact our Individual Health Care Plan Leads, Mrs Debbie Bradford or Mrs Dharani Pillay (Quality Assurance SENDCo) if you have any questions regarding your child’s medical needs.
