Mrs Jurczak

My name is Ms Jurczak and I am the Assistant Headteacher at New Hall Primary. I oversee Inclusion at New Hall, as well as Pupil Premium, attendance and safeguarding. I also lead the Well-Being team to promote the well-being of pupils, staff, parents and the whole community.

Mrs Bell

I am Lucy Bell and I teach classes from Reception to Year 6. As part of my role I run Forest School sessions for Year 1 and am involved in developing Outdoor Learning across the school. We believe that being outdoors in the natural environment has a positive effect on children’s well-being.

Mrs Card

My name is Mrs Card. I am the pastoral manager at New Hall. My role is to support children and parents. This may take on many different forms.

For children: My role involves being an advocate for children, supporting them with any social, emotional or wellbeing needs. Often when a child is affected by social or emotional situations, they are not able to access learning to their full potential. Having a trusted adult who is willing to listen, offer help and advice is crucial to getting their situation back on track.

For adults: Like children life circumstances can affect adults too. In a similar way my role is to offer parents and carers advice and support. This may mean sign posting to other organisations, or talking through managing the situations themselves through a structured and achievable plan.

Mrs Cornhill

I am the School Business Manager and am keen to be a member of the wellbeing team to represent support staff in non-teaching areas such as admin, site and catering.

Mrs Wilks

At New Hall Primary School, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers), and recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We recognise that children’s mental health is a crucial factor in their overall wellbeing and can affect their learning and achievement.

In my role as SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator), I help staff understand their responsibilities to children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), including children whose mental health problems mean they need special educational provision.

Mrs West

I am Mrs West and have been working, as a Teaching Assistant, at New Hall for the last eighteen years. I have recently trained as a mentor. I supervise an indoor area based on the KS2 playground every lunchtime. Inside there are lots of activities and quiet areas for those who don’t want to play on the playground. I am also available to talk about any worries or concerns that the children may have.
