Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

The pastoral care and well-being of each and every child at our school is of paramount importance. Every member of staff shares responsibility for supporting our children in a safe and secure environment conducive to raising self-esteem, building confidence and developing resilience in this ever changing, global society.

Our Pastoral Circle illustrates the structures embedded in our policies to support your child. Your child is supported by a team of experienced and caring professionals beginning with his/her form teacher who meets with him/her on a daily basis. The Year Head has the responsibility for supporting and encouraging the academic and pastoral development of all pupils within her year group. The Year Head plays a pivotal role in strengthening the relationships between home and school.

Our Leader of Pastoral Care and Community Mrs Barrett, the Designated Child Protection Teacher, looks after the pastoral care and discipline within our school. Mrs Mallon our Leader of Learning Support and Welfare is responsible for special education needs and Mrs Donnelly, our Leader of Learning and Teaching is in charge of academic and curriculum needs.

These structures in our school provide your child with numerous avenues through which to access support as required.

The Principal, Mr McNeill, leads us all in the pastoral care of our pupils.

Our full child protection policy is available by contacting the College.
