Pastoral Care

Our Pastoral Care Team

We believe passionately that a happy school community breeds confident children who excel academically and socially.

Class teachers and all senior leaders in each Key Stage will get to know all their pupils and take responsibility for your child’s welfare and progress in school.  Their aim and duty, is to find the spark that lights the burning fires of lifelong learning in each and every child.

Our highly trained Pastoral Team work closely with pupils and families when further support may be required.

If you feel you would benefit from a meeting with a member of the pastoral team please contact the school office.

If you have any queries in relation to pastoral care, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Plant or Ms Gallahan directly or via the School Office 01384 686717.


Mrs Plant

Ms Gallahan

At Rufford Primary School, we are very fortunate to have Luci, our School Dog, as a member of our Pastoral Care Team.  Luci is highly trained and has been working in schools since she was 6 weeks old.  Luci brings her magic to our school and is a special friend to many of our children (and staff!)  

If you would prefer not to interact with Luci, please just let us know.  We want to make sure everyone in our school is comfortable.
