Our Pastoral Manager
My name is Mrs Fredericks. I am the Pastoral Manager/HSSW at St Michael’s RC Primary School.
My role in school involves working directly as a Pastoral Mentor with children and their families/carers in a ‘lead professional’ role and co-ordinate support programmes to promote positive engagement. I also work in partnership with parents/carers advising on practical childcare, the importance of good attendance and parenting skills. To promote the self-esteem of family members helping them to develop personal and interpersonal skills, which will impact on their ability to communicate openly.
If you would like to book an appointment to see me please ask at the school office.
