Pastoral, Mental Health and Wellbeing


Pastoral Support:

At Ashbrook School we are passionate about making a difference. We want everyone to feel safe, welcome and supported. The mental health and wellbeing of our students and staff is our highest priority. Early intervention is essential.

We are very lucky to have wellbeing areas in school for the children and parents/carers. These areas provide a safe place where children feel they are listened to, valued and can also provide support for emotional and physical wellbeing. They also provide a place where parents/carers can come and share their thoughts or concerns.

We build trusting relationships with all of our pupils and their families. We will work with external agencies where required to support our children and families. In these situations, we ensure that a confidential, professional and non-judgmental and sensitive service is provided.

Please contact Mrs Stephenson the Pastoral Lead with any thoughts or concerns, you can do this by contacting the School Office on 01908 561366 or emailing
