Pastoral Care & Discipline Pastoral care permeates all aspects of school life. It reflects the values, attitudes, beliefs and practices of our Christian faith and involves all members of our school community – children, parents and all other adults who contribute to the well-being of each child. The Pastoral Care dimension deals with the physical, social, emotional, moral and academic needs of pupils. The caring of the teachers in the school will be evident in all aspects of the child’s school life. It is the aim of our school to provide a warm and caring environment in the school so that each person, both child and adult, associated with the school, can feel safe and secure. Aims To create an environment where children are safe and contented. To ensure the all-round development of each child. To help children grow in self-esteem, confidence and independence of thought. To communicate to our children, values and beliefs, that are in keeping with our ethos. To protect children from physical, social, emotional and intellectual harm and to provide them with the skills to cope with possible threats to their personal safety, both within and outside school. To encourage tolerance, understanding and sensitivity to the needs of others. To promote warm and positive relationships between children, staff and parents.
