Hi my name is Jackie Simsolo and I am the Pastoral Support Lead here at Broadstones School. Pastoral Care is becoming more and more crucial in schools because of the range of pressures and dangers that young people now face.  My role is to ensure the Physical emotional welfare of all our pupils, making sure they are safe, happy, involved and are able to perform to their
full potential.

Effective pastoral care supports young people in their natural progression and also develops their self-esteem, social skills and ability to cope with stress. By supporting our pupils and the delivery of their curriculum which meets their needs in turn will improve their attendance, retention and enhance their achievements and willingness to work hard.

Its key that every pupil in our school has someone they can talk to and feel comfortable with while ensuring their time here at Broadstones is fulfilling and as stress free as possible.
