Student Support

Bradley Stoke Community School provides a warm and caring environment for all students. Children learn best when they are safe, happy and well cared for and staff at Bradley Stoke Community School provide outstanding care and guidance. The dedicated student support team oversee the tutor teams in school and are able to respond to concerns quickly as they do not have a teaching timetable.

The team lead on all aspects of student care and guidance, behaviour, attendance, child protection and student well-being and are highly skilled at supporting students experiencing any difficulties that affect their learning and progress.

Our commitment to supporting students and parents is demonstrated through the work of our Parent Liaison Coordinator and our regular parenting programmes.

One of our strengths as a school is our emphasis on working in partnership with parents; parents and carers have a significant influence in changing behaviours, overcoming barriers to learning and supporting their child through times of transition. It is this which provides the foundation children need to achieve their potential and our commitment to supporting our students and parents is demonstrated through the work of our Parent liaison Coordinator.

In addition to the student support, the team also oversee the involvement of other professionals from external agencies who may need to support students from time to time. We are able to act as lead professionals for students where a wider assessment of needs is required and where an integrated approach to support is in the child’s best interests. Members of the student support team receive additional training for these aspects of their work and have a record of highly successful outcomes.

The student support team are non-teachers and are therefore very available for both students and parents and carers.

The team are :-

Ms Susie Beresford-Wylie - Director of Student Support

Mr Matt Smith - Student Support Leader for Year 9 and Associate Leader of the Student Support Team

Mrs Lynda Cordukes - Years 10 and 11

Mrs Jacqui Gallagher - Years 7 and 8 and Transition

Mrs Tracey Foster - Parent Liaison and Inclusion Leader

Mrs Madelaine McGinn- Attendance administrator

The team is currently divided into a Key Stage 3 team (Years 7-8, including transition) and a Key Stage 4 team (Years 9-11 and Post 16 transition). The student support team are also able to ensure that key focus areas for the school such as approaches to support the anti-bullying ethos, student council and rewards celebrations remain at the heart of the schools continuing drive for improvement.
