Family support/wellbeing

Welcome to the Family Support / Welbeing page.

Miss Lauren Keenan is St Mary Magdalene's Pastoral Manager.

At St Mary Magdalene's Primary School we recognise that education is about more than academics. We are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils, their families and staff.

We know everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable at times and anyone may need additional emotional support. Our Pastoral Manager has had extensive training in order to best support the children in our care. External support is sometimes required and families will be supported by school.

 If you wish to discuss any support for yourself or your family, please get in touch with Miss. Keenan at school (
