Pastoral Care

What's Up Alfie?

Years 1 and 2 watched the performance about mental health and took part in workshops. The play explored; how to deal with angry feelings and behaviour, being kind and respectful of others, being resilient and not giving up, positive friendship and relationships, managing stress and when to ask for help and who to ask.


As the Pastoral Team at St. Michael's Catholic Primary School we aim to provide support for all of our pupils and their families. We offer a safe place where individuals are valued, listened to and supported to overcome any barriers to learning.
