Student Pastoral Support
The pastoral team at Test Valley School consists of a Head of Year for each year group, Tutors, Attendance and Pastoral Support staff and 'Hope' our lovely therapy dog.
We also have a Pastoral support area, within this area we have the 'Reset Zone' and the 'Learning Zone', in addition we have Oasis, which is lead by our new SENDCo, Mrs Andrews.
The Pastoral support area is led by Mrs Collins, Mrs Whitehead, Mrs Peszkowski, Mrs Ling and Mrs Thomsett. It is vital that students feel safe and supported at all times, once these needs are met, they are more able to focus on lessons and achieve incredible things in their learning.
Our Pastoral Support program has 4 main elements, please see below
Therapeutic Active Listening Assistant (TALA)
