Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care offers support to the complete development of each student. While it is limited to and by school time we realise that many external issues impinge on the development of students. Our aim is to offer help, guidance and support to our students throughout their time in school.

This we hope to achieve through child protection, anti bullying, code of discipline, career guidance, learning support, chaplaincy support, mentoring and above all individual contact with our students. Once a week a Pastoral Care team meets to oversee student welfare within the school.

This includes identifying students who are in need of support in learning and socialising, students who have suffered loss, inviting speakers to address selected student groups on relevant issues and supporting particular programmes from time to time such as Positive Mental Health, Mentoring Programme, and Anti Bullying modules.
