Pastoral Support

Mrs Woods

I’m Mrs Woods and I’d love to introduce myself to you all as your new pastoral support person at Brundall Primary. I will work alongside Mrs Sutton and my role is to support your children to gain as much as possible for their life at school.

I’m here to help you deal with any worries or concerns you have about your child and to help you tackle any home issues that are making school life really difficult for you and your family. If I cannot help you I will refer you to specialist agencies or support services if you wish.

I have a wealth of experience with supporting children and families with a wide variety of problems including

  • anger
  • worry & panic
  • confidence
  • resilience
  • social skills & friendships
  • trauma
  • parental separation
  • sleep

I’m a trained domestic abuse champion for Norfolk county council as well as a children & schools bereavement champion. I have recently completed Drawing & Talking therapy training and this intervention is very useful to help children with processing trauma.

I have lots of experience with special needs as a SEN parent myself and have 10 years’ experience of supporting Autistic Spectrum Disorder as well as numerous other conditions such as ADHD and Sensory Processing.

I work on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and can be contacted through the school office if you wish to speak with me about your child. I’m very excited to be joining such a wonderful school and community.
