Widden Primary School

Pastoral Support

One of the greatest strengths of this school has always been its outstanding pastoral care and strong sense of community. We believe that the welfare of all of our pupils is paramount, because when a child feels safe and secure in their environment they are able to learn and develop their talents to the full.

Mrs Kittle is our Safeguarding and Pastoral Lead and she oversees welfare support and coordinates a wider team of dedicated staff.
