Pastoral Support

At Micklefield CE Primary Academy, we believe that supporting the health and well-being of our pupils and parents will assist in improving each pupil’s school experience and this, in turn, will help academic outcomes.

Senior Mental Health Lead: Mrs Emma Cook (Headteacher)

E.L.S.A. (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant): Mrs Claire Heffron

Mental Health First Aiders and Wellbeing Champions: Mrs Claire Heffron and Miss Helen Bellard

Governor responsible for Mental Health: Mrs Lyndsey Demir

Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) is critical to the development and educational achievement of children and young people and research has shown it has important consequences for health and social outcomes in adult life.

We can offer support by:

  • Increasing confidence and self esteem
  • Friendships, behaviour and social skills
  • Improving relationships with others
  • Listening to what children have to say and helping them to understand their feelings
  • Expressing their views
  • Support through difficulties at home and at school
  • Bereavement
  • Transition from KS1 to KS2 and to high school 

This support may be provided through:

  • Intervention groups
  • Targeted individual support
  • External agency provision (e.g. Cluster involvement, Counselling, Educational Psychologist, CAMHS)
