Rainbow Room

Our Staff

Mrs Read and Mrs Currie provide pastoral support for the children, staff and families at St Marys and they are based in our 'Rainbow Room'.  They are both trained as Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSA) and are both Thrive practitioners at school.  They attend regular ELSA networks to share good practice and resources with other local schools. 

Scripture that Guides or Our Work: Two pieces of Scripture that guide our work in the Rainbow are:

Isaiah 41:10:

"So do not fear, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you.  I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."


1 Corinthians 13:4-7

"Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."


Why is it called the Rainbow Room?

In the Bible, a Rainbow is used as a sign of a fresh start and of God's promise to look after his people.  The whole aim of the work we do in the Rainbow Room is to look after the children, staff and families of St Marys - to look after them and give them hope..... a fresh start.  


Examples of work we do:

Group/Individual Activities 

Through the course of each day we support groups of children and individuals on a 1:1 basis from across the school to address a wide range of themes, for example, bereavement and loss, home-related issues, self-esteem, struggling with aspects of learning, turn taking, relationships and friendships within school.



We support children and families as they join and move through St Marys, and we help prepare our children when the time comes to leave school - usually at the end of Year 6.
