Our pastoral care is based on a deep respect for the dignity and uniqueness of the individual person, as ‘we are all made in the image of God’
As a Catholic school, we provide a strong sense of wellbeing, belonging and security that affirms students in their dignity and worth, as well as helping students to achieve their full potential as a human person, physically, socially, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.
Unlike many schools, we deal with behavioural issues separately, which leaves Pastoral to be more focused on exactly that, and accessed by all.
Our pastoral offering provides:
- A dedicated ‘Chill Out Room’
- Support programme for primary transition (helping new pupils make the move from primary school to secondary)
- Anger management groups
- Stress management
- Lunch clubs
- Organisational skills development
- Drop-in pastoral care
- Safeguarding children
“We have a strong pastoral team who are committed to the care and nurture of our students, a school staff who understand the value in what is offered by the team and regularly refer students of concern.
My team are varied in approach and that leaves us able to offer the students the care they need, not just what fits in with us. I am confident that Pastoral Care and the provision we offer will continue to go from strength to strength in the future. “
