Pastoral Care

Hello, I am the Pastoral lead at Shaldon Primary School. I am also the person who is responsible for Safeguarding. I have worked in education for the past 16 years at different schools across both Torbay and Devon. I am an experienced THRIVE practitioner and grief counsellor. I am also an Early Help Trainer within Torbay. I work collaboratively with many different agencies across Devon, to support children within education.

I am here to assist children and parents on their journey through primary school and all the challenges that come with this journey; whether they are emotional, physical or any difficulty that impacts on your child’s learning and becomes a barrier to them achieving their very best.

I can signpost parents and carers to information or support to enable you to get back on track. Often local government information changes or forms become more complicated; I am constantly informed of these changes and can support you to navigate your way around them. I have a large family and understand the stresses and strains that are met by families on a daily basis.

If you have some kind of difficulty however trivial or difficult it might seem and this may impact on your child’s education come and see me as communication is key so, give me a ring or catch up with me at the coffee mornings or make an appointment for a private consultation.

Mrs Wendy Parr
