East Ward's Pastoral Team

At East Ward Community Primary School we want to make sure that children are happy, secure and successful and recognise the importance of good mental health. We believe that by creating resilient young people, our children will understand how to manage change, cope with stress effectively, manage their thoughts and feelings and have good problem solving skills.

East Ward is committed to supporting all members of our school community and recognise sometimes some children or their families need a little bit of extra help. There are a team of adults in school who organise and provide additional support for parents, carers and children.

We will work with a child to understand their needs and goals. Our aim is to give children the skills they need to be able to improve their own resilience and face hardships or difficulties with strength and determination.

Miss Sheridan and Miss Hewitt work in the My Cloud and support children and their families.

The My Cloud is an inclusive, predictable, calm environment, where children are valued, respected and nurtured unconditionally. 1-1 or group sessions take place in the My Cloud.

Early Help 
All members of our Pastoral team are able to advise families on the Early Help Process and how to access the support you need. Please speak to any of the team if you would like to discuss accessing Early Help. The Bury Early Help Team are able to make contact with a number of partner organisations to ensure a collaborative approach. We will complete an Early Help assessment (Story So Far) to help the team identify an area of need and put the best support in place for your family. 

For further information on Early Help please click here
There will always be someone available at the beginning and end of the day so please talk to them directly if you wish to discuss your child.
