At Starling School, one of our major objectives is to provide the highest quality pastoral support, throughout the school. We believe that good pastoral support focuses on nurturing the individual needs of each pupil. We aim to build trusting and empathic relationships with all our pupils and their families. Starling school understands the importance of enabling the voice of the child to be heard, to promote safeguarding and well-being.

Pastoral care underpins personal development and we know from experience that with outstanding pastoral care, pupils feel they belong and their self-esteem is able to flourish because they feel valued and cared for.

We are a talking School, we encourage our pupils to share their concerns at all times. We work in partnership with the parent's council, to support pupils achieve their best, educationally, socially, morally and emotionally. Our pupils are encouraged to make the most of their time, so every effort is made to remove obstacles to successful learning and to equip them with the confidence and skills to be enthusiastic learners and effective members of the community.

Every member of staff is committed to supporting the well-being and emotional health of our pupils and their families. We are happy to speak to pupils and parents/guardians about any concerns they may have. However, our pastoral care support team is made up of Mrs. Mercy Ugbaja, Mrs. Josephine Okonedo our school counsellor and Mrs. Chino Balogun.


The role of the pastoral support team:

To support and work alongside parents in addressing pastoral concerns impacting on their child's learning and development.

To work with staff in ensuring good pupil support and build upon the caring and respectful relationships that exist between staff, pupils and families.

Responding to situations as they arise within school.

Meeting with parents/guardians to discuss issues relating to their child.


Any child in the school can ask to speak to our Pastoral Support team if they have a problem or a worry at school or at home. They can do this by either approaching the team or by asking a member of staff. A suitable time will then be arranged to meet.

If you have a pastoral concern regarding your child then you can phone the school, speak to your child's class teacher or make an appointment to speak to our pastoral care support team. Please call the School office on 08146484595 or email:
