Pastoral support

At Locking, we believe that parents and carers are vital in supporting their children’s well being and therefore their ability to access fully the education we offer.


We also know that there can be times in our lives when, for whatever reason, events happen that make this difficult.


We have a caring, knowledgeable pastoral team, who support both parents and children in many, many ways, to ensure that they can overcome hurdles and move on positively.


Our Pastoral Team

Mrs Roxanne Simpson - SENCO and Designated Safeguarding Lead

Mrs Sharon Ledbury- Deputy Safeguarding Lead and Mental Health Lead

Mrs Rachel Keate- Learning Mentor


Pastoral care is the name given to a school’s commitment to improving and developing the mental wellbeing of each child. This is achieved by creating a school environment that is inclusive, friendly and child-focused. Plans and provisions are put in place which consider and include the physical, social, intellectual and emotional needs of every child so that we cater for everyone’s wellbeing.


Improving and nurturing our childrens' mental wellbeing has many benefits. How we feel about ourselves always carries into other areas of our life. When pupils feel positive, supported and looked after, often this has a positive effect on their academic progress and overall health too. This also begins to equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to be in charge of their own wellbeing as they grow up.


Some of the areas we can offer support to your family include:

Low-self esteem
