Welcome to the Dragon's Den Pastoral Care Team
 at Kings Academy Northern Parade School

Our mission is to foster a nurturing and supportive environment for every child on their educational journey. 


🌈 About Us

At the Dragon's Den, we are more than just a pastoral care team; we are a team dedicated to creating a safe haven for the children. Our team of compassionate individuals are here to guide, listen and inspire. Together we form a protective circle around our little ones, encouraging them to spread their wings and embrace the joys of learning.


🤝 Our Approach

We believe in the power of connection and understanding. Through open communication and genuine care, we address the emotional needs of each child, fostering resilience and empathy. Liaising with parents are key to our work. Our holistic approach integrates academic support with emotional well-being, ensuring a balanced and flourishing primary school experience.


🚀 Empowering Every Dragon

From triumphs to challenges, the Dragon's Den stands by each student, empowering them to face life's adventures with courage and determination. Together, we create a foundation of kindness, respect, and inclusivity, cultivating a positive atmosphere where every dragon can thrive. Working closely with our Dragons Values.
