The success of any school is a reflection of the quality and commitment of the staff team.
Everyone employed at Pond Meadow has an important role to play in the education of each individual pupil and we aim to bring out their full range of skills and create a teaching atmosphere that fosters learning in all aspects of the pupil’s day.
Our staff are committed and give freely of their own time and energy to provide the depth of education, in all its guises, which ensures that learning is appropriate and enjoyable.
The relationship that is built up between the classteacher and each pupil is a strength of the school and we use the trust established in this relationship to support pupils in their personal development. Every member of our staff acts as a role model to our pupils.
All staff are supported by the schools’ staff development sessions and we seek to keep our expertise up to date and relevant to each individual pupil.
Our pupils are also supported by the skills of a wide range of professionals from Health and Social Services.
The Health Services provision at the school includes a School Nurse team, a Speech and Language Therapist and a Speech and Language Assistant, a Physiotherapist, and visiting professionals for Consultant paediatrics/school medicals, Occupational Therapy, Music Therapy and access to Clinical Psychologist services. There is also a Link Social Worker for the school.
