Pastoral Support

World Book Day, March 2017 (10)

The staff go the extra mile to take care of my child"


We want all of our children to be happy, settled and working to their full potential at John of Gaunt Infant and Nursery School.

However, we are aware that sometimes children experience challenging times which can become barriers to learning and well-being.

Sharon Goff, our Nurture Teaching Assistant, works closely with teachers and parents/carers to make sure that children are in school and learning, as well as to identify any issues or areas of concern. She aims to detect issues promptly in order to implement extra help and support before situations worsen.

In some cases, the school will liaise with outside agencies to provide targeted intervention, as appropriate.

Strong links with Carol Flatters, Parent Support Adviser at Aylsham High School, provide access to additional local support and advice for parents/carers.

No problem or concern is too small and we strive to find a solution together.
