At Greenfield E-ACT Academy we believe that good pastoral support focuses on nurturing the individual needs of each and every child. We pride ourselves on building trusting relationships with all of our pupils and their families. We are a THRIVE school and work carefully to ensure that all of our children understand how to keep themselves safe and develop strategies to support their emotional needs. (Please see our THRIVE page).
Our latest OFSTED report stated ‘Staff at this school care deeply for their pupils’ (November 2019). All staff at Greenfield understand and promote the mental health and well being of our pupils and this underpins everything we do. We believe that if children feel they belong within our Academy, then their self-esteem is able to flourish because they feel valued and cared for. We understand the importance of enabling the voice of the child to be heard and the safeguarding of our children is paramount.
Supporting the pastoral needs of our pupils may involve working with external agencies. In these situations we ensure that a confidential, professional, non-judgemental and sensitive service is provided.
At Greenfield, we follow the Restorative Practice approach with managing behaviour. This encourages children to take responsibility for their own actions and to make amends where it is needed. Please see our Restorative Practice Guidance for more information.

Supporting Pupils with Medical Needs
E-ACT is committed to ensuring that all students with medical conditions can access and enjoy the same opportunities as any other student and to ensuring that they are able to play a full and active role in school life, remain healthy and achieve their academic potential.
E-ACT will ensure that its academies implement and maintain an effective management system for the administration of medicines to all students in our care in order to ensure that appropriate support is provided to individual students with medical needs.
Please contact the school office if you have any questions regarding your child’s medical needs.
