Emotional Wellbeing

At St. Anthony’s we believe that every child has the right to access learning and reach their full potential. As a school, we recognise that some children may face barriers to their learning and therefore we are dedicated to supporting and helping them break down these barriers through pastoral care and by putting their emotional wellbeing at the forefront of this approach. Through our dedicated and nurturing pastoral care, we allow all pupils to show their sparkle.
