Achieving Over The Years

Safeguarding

"Pastoral care is concerned with prompting pupils' personal and social development and fostering positive attitudes; through the quality of teaching and learning; through the nature of relationships amongst pupils, teachers and other adults in the school; through arrangements for monitoring pupils' overall progress, academic, personal and social through specific pastoral structures and support systems; and through extra-curricular activities and the school ethos. Pastoral care, accordingly should help a school to achieve success" (DES, 1989).
