For those of you who do not already know me, my name is Mrs Reeve, and as well as being the Year 3 teacher, I am the Pastoral Lead in school. I am here to support parents and families with the ups and downs of day to day life both inside and outside of school, support and signpost, and am available for a chat in the mornings from Monday-Wednesday. There is no problem too big or too small, I will try to help, and if I cannot help you myself, I will find those who can. On Thursday mornings I hold Cogenhoe Cares. It is an opportunity to come into school and discuss with me any concerns you may have, support you may need or just a chance to offload. I will be available until 9:30am. There is no need to make an appointment, just pop in for a chat. I can’t promise to have all the answers, but I will endeavour to help wherever I can.
From time to time, all children need some form of emotional support, whether it be anxiety, anger, bereavement, friendships, emotional regulation, relaxation, calming, social skills, self esteem, well-being to name but a few. As the children’s Pastoral Lead, I am available in school for children to talk to and most children know where to find me! I also lead the School Council, Cogenhoe Cheer magazine and coordinate our Wellbeing Buddies. Watch this space for more information about our Wellbeing Wednesday activities. In addition to these roles, I am currently enrolling on a Senior Mental Health Lead course and am a Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.
How will you find me? I will be outside the Year 3 classroom on Mondays-Wednesdays from 8.45am – 9am.
I am available to take phone calls and meetings on Thursdays. You can phone me on 01604 890380, which will take you through to the Office and they can transfer the call to me. any time. If I am not available, I will always get back to you as soon as I can. I can arrange to see you privately if you wish, or just stop to chat to me in the morning.
If you have wellbeing concerns about your child, please fill in the following form to help us to prioritise the needs of our children:
We have a tiered approach to organising the Pastoral Support needed.
Pastoral Support – When a child needs support, we offer a tiered approach that is personalised to the individual needs of the child and is regularly assessed based on the progress. Depending on the success of the intervention, it may either be withdrawn or extended. The tiers are as follows
Tier 1 – In class support strategies offered with weekly check ins from the class teaching team.
Tier 2 – Group support intervention based on need.
Tier 3 – 1:1 sessions regularly to reinforce positive behaviours and strategies and work on individual needs alongside parental support.
Tier 4 – Referrals made with the appropriate agencies and Early Help Assessment opened.
Furthermore I am here to not only support pupils but families as well, please see below for some useful information surrounding any difficulties you may be experiencing at home. Or if you would like any further support please feel free to contact me.
