Pastoral Support

Welcome to the Pastoral Support Page


Watch this space for information about the variety of pastoral support  for children and families available in school!


Meanwhile, if you have any queries or just want to talk things over with someone, please contact one of the pastoral team; Mrs Walpole, our SENCO; Miss B who supports children throughout the school, runs The Hive ( supported learning and lunchtime provision) and is a really good sounding board; and Mrs Darton, who is available to speak with and offer support to children and parents on anything and everything.


Coming soon...

Information on  Bouncing Back, Restorative Practice, What do our ELSA's do?, Bacon Butties for Parents, information on courses for parents, The Hive, Lunch Club and other in-school support.


Tricky Mornings 

I recently found this on a Canadian parenting website and it seemed pretty sound to me - so I thought I'd share it with you.  The website is Just search school mornings. They also have some pretty good stuff on raising self esteem. Hope it helps!

We are very lucky at Carr Junior School to have access to a small counselling service, CATS (Carr and Acomb Therapy Service). This runs out of Carr Children's Centre. All counsellors are currently advanced trainees in their field and receive regular supervision. Do have a look at the leaflet below. Should you feel you might benefit from this service, please see Mrs Darton in the first instance.
