Pastoral Team

At Bournville we believe strongly in caring for our children and families.  As part of our School Based Early Help offer, our  Pastoral Team works with Parents and children both in and out of school. This pastoral role includes liaising with staff, parents, children and outside agencies to ensure the well-being of individual pupils is fully supported.  For the child, they are someone supportive to talk to, share successes with, or to provide help with difficulties or worries


Our Pastoral Team help pupils make the most of school life by breaking down barriers to learning and helping to make school successful for them.
