Meet the Pastoral Team
Mrs D Barter - Pastoral Lead
Mrs L Charles - Parent Family Support Advisor
Having now been a part of the Birchfield Pastoral Team for over 10 years I have witnessed how well we as a school community pull together and support one another. Over that time, I have also had 2 children of my own, who both brought their own trials and tribulations and tested my own skills, where atimes I have had to remind myself to "practice what I preach."
Although incredibly rewarding, being a parent is also really hard! Which is why I personally know that it is so important that we reach out and ask for the support as and when we need to.
My background in children’s mental health services and my many years experience as a forces wife taught me that in order for our children to be truly successful in life, we must consider the wellbeing of the entire family as a whole. Life doesn’t come without it’s challenges, but I am hugely passionate about the welfare of children and believe that if we all work together, our children will grow to be the best people they can be
