We believe all children have a right to feel and be safe and happy. We have a dedicated pastoral team in school who take great pride in nurturing our pupils and ensuring they are happy in school.
It cannot be over-stressed how the pastoral care of all of our pupils is the responsibility of the whole community. The way we treat, talk to, interact with and indeed teach pupils all contribute to the quality of their welfare, but sometimes for whatever reasons this may not always be easy to do. Our team is here to help!
Whatever your concerns may be, please come and speak with someone or telephone the office if you need advice.
We have two members of staff who work from The Sunshine Room in school, they are Mrs Finnerty our Senior Learning Mentor and Miss Hackett Learning Mentor. They are also part of our DSL staff (Designated Safeguarding Leads) in school.

This is our Safeguarding team in school.
If you have any worries or concerns about a child please speak to someone in school immediately,
either by phone or in person.
If we are not in school and you have concerns you can contact the Children's Advice and Support Service (CASS). They provide a single point of contact for professionals and members of the public who want to seek support or raise concerns about a child.
You can contact them on 0121 303 1888.
The mental health and wellbeing of all members of our Broadmeadow family is extremely important to us and this is embedded across all that we do as a school. Our children are taught to recognise that we all have both physical and mental health and that this can fluctuate at different times. Children are regularly given opportunities to reflect on their own physical and mental health; to think about what things have a positive and negative impact on these; and to begin to develop their own understanding of what helps them to remain physically and mentally healthy.
Our whole-school approaches to health and wellbeing are also supported by more targeted provisions for small groups and individuals. Mrs Hankinson, Deputy Headteacher, is our Senior Mental Health Lead and works closely with our Learning Mentors and ELSA as well as with external agencies.
This outlines some of the support that can be provided within school as well as support available from external providers.
Within school our SENDCo, oversees our graduated approach to support as set out in the SEND Local Offer.
We use Provision Map to record provisions and to create Pupil Profiles and support plans.
CPOMs is used to inform support
