Pastoral team- how we can help

Our Pastoral Team work hard to ensure our children and families can access support for their emotional wellbeing. We work with families to overcome any challenges to children being happy, safe and learning to their full potential.

If you have any challenges and would like support, we can offer a problem-solving chat with one of our team, signposting to further support and referral for help if you feel this is needed. Call school on 0113 8878235 and ask to speak to us, or email info@fountainprimary.org, marking your email FAO Pastoral Team.

We encourage our families to talk to us about any challenges they might be facing, and pride ourselves on our non-judgemental, inclusive approach.
