Mrs McDonald Pastoral Care

I am the Pastoral Care Worker at Talbot Primary.


I have been working at Talbot for the past 15 years, and for the past eight years in my present role.

I am a keen walker and completed the 3 peaks in 2012 raising £4000 for Cancer and Hospice charities in memory of my Husband. I am also a registered foster carer and offer respite for a family with a child with learning difficulties.

I have 2 children who both attended Talbot and enjoyed their experiences here, gaining entry into the local Grammar schools.

My role at Talbot is to support the emotional needs of the children, parents and staff within school. This can be many things including emotional literacy support, counselling, parenting support, referring to outside services or just offering a friendly ear. I enjoy my role very much as every day offers a new challenge.
