Pastoral Care

My Name is Mrs Karen Sheriff and I am the Pastoral Lead at Flanderwell Primary school. It is my role to ensure children are happy and enjoy their learning. There are many different things I do in school and you are welcome to come and discuss these with me.

As a Pastoral Lead, I can offer support and advice, understanding any issues that are important to you and your child. I am good listener and will never judge.     

I will use varying methods to help your child; this may be through 1-1 work, or small group work.

As a mentor I will:
  • Encourage your child to attend
  • Offer support and advice.
  • Be someone to talk to.
  • Raise self esteem and confidence.
  • Help to develop a positive attitude.
  • Help with any problems in school.
  • Help your child to fulfil their potential.
  • Help you to help your child\children.
  • Ensure happy playtimes/lunchtimes.

Remember that mentoring is not a punishment. It is about working together to support you and your child around any issues that are important to you.  

I will also be monitoring attendance and may invite you into school to discuss your child’s attendance and punctuality.

I am here for You and Your child/children.


Mrs K.Sheriff.

Learning Mentor/Attendance Officer.                                



We will be happy to accept any uniform and shoes/trainers that your child has grown out of.

Please hand in to reception. 

Many Thanks
