The importance of pastoral care within the school environment is widely acknowledged as being an essential and invaluable part of every child's life. Our aim is to ensure that every child is happy and, therefore, able to enjoy every aspect of their school life.
Pastoral care encompasses everything we do – aspects of the school's work and teaching contribute to the care, welfare and personal development of every child. A happy child not only achieves academically, they are also able to make a positive contribution to activities which lie outside the classroom.
The three Rs of pastoral care are relationships, respect and responsibility. We believe this is achieved through a proactive, collaborative approach in which all members of the school community play a part. We are committed to continued support and guidance, as well as striving to implement new initiatives, which enhance every child's social and emotional intelligence further.
Peer Support is an integral part of our commitment to pastoral care throughout the School. All our Year 6 pupils are invited to apply for the role of a Peer Supporter, whose job it is to offer support at playtimes or after lunch, in both Prep and Pre-Prep; a helping hand, a listening ear, a friendly chat, a point in the right direction, or simply being a peacemaker in a brewing storm!
Our Peer Supporters are readily identified by their maroon ties, which they wear with tremendous pride.
