Sir Bobby Robson School

Pastoral Support


At Sir Bobby Robson School, we strongly believe that partnership with families and care networks are an essential tool in our pupils’ development socially, emotionally and educationally. Parents and carers have the most powerful influence on their child’s development and we hope you will work with us to support your child and the school to make the most of all the opportunities that are available.

Individual pastoral support is available to our pupils via our dedicated Pastoral Support Team. We also ensure we meet the needs of our pupils through regular contact with parents/carers and outside agencies involved in each pupils welfare, to provide the best possible level of support for all-round development. Our team of highly skilled teachers and learning support staff, help pupils to reduce their barriers to learning. Through our high expectations, we challenge our pupils to succeed.

We encourage all forms of parental contact with the school since a close, three way partnership between pupils, school and parents/carers always results in greater mutual understanding for the benefit of the pupils concerned. Senior Leaders will always try to be available should you need to discuss anything with us, but due to all of our teachers having a heavy classroom commitment, an appointment will need to be made prior to coming to school to ensure a journey is not to be wasted.

We also arrange coffee mornings and parent ‘workshops’, which enable parents and carers to come together to share ideas and experiences. If you would like to attend or have any suggestions for future workshops please contact Emma on 01473 556210.
