Mrs Rigby is our school Pastoral Lead - she provides a wide range of support for the children and families within our school. Her work can involve her working with the Senior Leaders.
Mrs Rigby is good at understanding and unpicking behaviours, helping us to move forward. She is understanding and always sees things from everybody's point of view.
Mrs Rigby works with children for many reasons - bereavement, friendship issues, emotional support, the list is endless. This support can be through group work, one to one work or parent and child sessions.
Mrs Rigby is the main point of contact for our families who might be in need of Early Help. She has worked hard to build local connections with outside agencies including our local Foodbank and the Uniform Project - if this support is needed, she is the lady to see. She also works alongside Barnardo's - Morecambe Bay Mental Health Support Team.
Mrs Rigby runs our Sports Leaders team - training the Y5 and Y6 children to run playground games on both playgrounds. This team plays a valuable role in creating a safe, friendly, happy and peaceful atmosphere for children during playtimes and lunchtimes. The Sports Leaders enjoy their responsibilities and are also a great help to the staff. This summer, Mrs Rigby has been involved in organising a mural for the KS2 playground. A quiet space for the children to escape the busyness of playtimes. Mrs Rigby has lots of ideas for the Sports Leaders and Quiet Space; watch this space for more details.
The affirmation display is outside Mr Fern's office - Mrs Rigby changes this daily. She loves nothing more than when children find her to tell her what each day's affirmation is. The Affirmation Station is a superhero theme and has some brand-new adjectives to empower us! She does love to remind us that, 'We are AMAZING!'.
Mrs Rigby is a qualified nursery nurse with over 20 years' experience of working in various settings (mostly educational), including mainstream and special education. She is a Mental Health First Aider as well as a qualified Relax Kids coach. She is also a mum herself - understanding life as a parent!
Mrs Rigby LOVES our school family and has the role of public relations - running the social media side of the school.
Mrs Rigby loves Morecambe promenade, and as someone who loves our local area, she is very excited about her ideas for linking Grosvenor Park with the community!
You can find Mrs Rigby in the Cosy Corner!
