Introducing Sam Thornton – Pastoral Support Officer (Federation) 
Hi I’m Sam Thornton and I am the Pastoral Support Officer across the federation.  Within the White Rose Federation, we want everyone involved to feel welcomed and supported. We aim to provide a safe place where individuals are valued, listened to and helped to overcome any barriers to learning so they can lead fulfilling and balanced lives at school and beyond. 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. If you feel your child or family would benefit from some support please contact your child’s teacher who will pass your details onto me.

Leading up to Christmas we will be focussing on the 5 Steps to wellbeing. This fortnightly focus - Connect • Connect with people around you family, friends and neighbours. • Connecting with others helps us feel happy and secure. Why not give a friend a call? 
For all the children in the federation who would like to take part, please send evidence of you participating in the fortnight focus and email them direct to myself, one will be randomly selected and mentioned in the next newsletter.  My email address is [email protected]
