Pupil Welfare

Pupil Welfare

We want every child at St Margaret's to feel happy, safe and confident. High priority is given to pupil welfare and all staff monitor the children’s happiness and well being and their social and emotional development.
 
As a school we have invested in the THRIVE programme which provides support to pupils experiencing social and emotional difficulties. This support could be short-term following a single traumatic incident, or may be longer term support, as needed. We have several members of staff who are licensed THRIVE practitioners and who work with children during times of difficulty.
 
If you have any concerns about your child’s well being please talk to either your child’s class teacher or a member of the pastoral team.  Our pastoral team includes Mrs Pike (Deputy Head / SENCO); Mrs Wills (Lead Pastoral Teaching Assistant and THRIVE worker) and Mrs Lewis (Family Support Worker). Mrs Stell is also available if you have concerns about your child's well being. 

Family Support
Mrs Lewis is our family support worker. She currently works two days a week and is available to support parents experiencing parenting challenges. She runs a weekly coffee morning drop in or is available to meet with parents 1:1 either in school or in your own home to discuss any parenting concerns.
In the Summer term of 2016 we were awarded the Happiness and Well-Being Award in recognition of all we do to ensure the children's well being is at the forefront of school life. We are proud to be the first school in Torbay to receive this award.
