Pastoral care must incorporate the dual role of protection and safeguarding a child’s welfare as well as promoting a child’s social, emotional and academic development to allow him/her to benefit from all aspects of school life and become an independent learner and responsible member of the school community.
We are committed to providing a fully accessible environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors, regardless of their educational, physical, sensory, social, spiritual, emotional and cultural needs. We are committed to challenging negative attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.
Rules are kept to a minimum and are generally to ensure the safety and happiness of the children while they are in school. Children are expected to respect the teaching staff, other adults in the school community, their fellow pupils and property.
It is expected that the children will be attentive, well behaved and hard working in the classroom. Kindness, courtesy and consideration for others are highly valued and positively reinforced by all members of staff.
We are a listening school and central to our pastoral care policy is the belief that all children have the right to start and end the day in a happy frame of mind.
