Pastoral Care

At Hampton College Primary we value working in partnership with our families. We appreciate there are times in a child’s life where they need a helping hand, a kind word or a bit of extra support pastorally, to help them to deal with certain issues which may be upsetting for them, for example friendship disputes, anxiety, bereavement, loss or separation. We also know that families sometimes need some extra support or guidance in difficult circumstances and we believe that school staff can sometimes offer the stability that families need in order to face unexpected challenges.

We have a team of staff in school who can support parents and children in such circumstances. Your first point of contact should either be your child’s class teacher or Mrs Katherine McAlister, our Engagement & Pastoral Support Co-ordinator, who is here to help with any matters affecting our children and their families. We also have a Family Support Worker, Mrs Jane Barrett, who works with us on Tuesdays and Thursdays and can offer guidance and support connected with family issues, housing, financial worries etc. Jane can be contacted through Mrs McAlister or the School Office.
