Pastoral Support & Guidance

What support will there be for my child’s overall wellbeing?

At Testwood we have a highly motivated, enthusiastic team of colleagues including Progress Leaders, Behaviour and Support Coordinators, Emotional Literacy Support Assistants and Learning Support Assistants.

We believe in working in partnership with parents. Students and parents will be at the heart of the decision-making process, ensuring high quality individual education pathways are carefully planned around the specific needs of the student.

Our individual education pathways put a greater emphasis on understanding and addressing students’ wider needs, resulting in a more personalised approach.
