Pastoral Support Officer

My name is Laura Simms, and I am the Pastoral Support Officer and part of the safeguarding team. I am here to support you and your family however best I can.  Within my role I attend meetings such as Team Around the Family and Child in Need meetings. These meetings ensure that everyone is supporting your family as best as possible.


Part of my role also includes completing early help assessments. These assessments can support you in applying for direct payments for respite support and looking at what services are currently involved with your family and if there are any other services which may benefit your family. These assessments are passed on to the early help team who will come out and see you to see how they can support you.


I currently lead on “Friends of Fox Wood” this is our school PTA. I hold coffee mornings which enable you to meet other parents and support the Fox Wood community with fundraising.


I look forwarding to meeting and working with you while you and your children take the journey through Fox Wood.

I can be contacted through the school office on 01925 811534 or at
