Pastoral Care in Pre-prep

At the centre of all that we do is our concern for the well-being of each pupil. We nurture each pupil's growing sense of identity and promote a feeling of security and self-belief.

Children are respected and known as individuals in our Pre-prep. Each and every child has their part to play in the School, and their differences are celebrated. We work to develop respect in our pupils, both for others and for themselves. 

You will find our 'Golden Rules' painted on the wall of Pre-prep. These rules underpin our community life: 'be honest; be kind; be gentle; work hard; listen to people and look after property'.We have high expectations of behaviour. The children learn why these rules matter as well as how to follow them.

We support the children as they develop vital social skills, such as making and keeping friendships, expressing their feelings and listening. Through Circle Time and Star Assemblies, social progress and independence are celebrated just as much as academic progress, and in their everyday interactions, children learn to take the perspective of others and to understand how to work together.

Our form teachers are the first point of contact for parents. Parents see the form teacher every day when they drop off or pick up their child and are encouraged to discuss any concerns they may have and to share any good news. 

"It's a particularly friendly and kind school, where every child is treated as an individual and their particular potential is considered."
