Pastoral Care

The most important part of a child’s social and emotional development is to give every child a positive self image. We try to achieve this through giving the children plenty of praise for things they do well and by giving children the opportunity to contribute to the life of the school.

We have a caring and considerate staff who do their utmost to ensure fairness at all times. In return we expect the children to show courtesy and consideration to friends, peers and adults and to display pride in the school by always giving of their best.   We rely on an atmosphere of co-operation and mutual respect.



The class teacher is concerned not only for the education of the child but also for their personal and social development.   We try to combine high expectations with a sympathetic approach, however, sometimes problems do arise in which case we try to involve parents at an early stage.   We hope that as parents you will do the same, informing us early of problems that may effect your child’s time in school.
School rules are important and are incorporated into the general ethos of the school.   We expect high standards of behaviour from the children, this means;

- Encouraging pupils to see other people’s points of view.
- Moving calmly and quietly about the school.
- Speaking politely to everyone.
- Being quiet at the appropriate moments.
- Keeping the school clean and tidy.
- Being in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing.
- Up holding the school’s code of behaviour even when outside of school.

We also have a dedicated Pastoral Team who work together to support families and children who can from time to time experience difficulties including behavioural problems, poor attendance, financial and domestic difficulties and parenting issues.
