Pastoral Care

The pastoral care is fostered by a sense of community

Pastoral care is of a high calibre throughout our school. Your child will be cared for and feel part of the school community which everyone helps to foster and develop. There is a real feeling of a family atmosphere at Benedict House, and we all look out for each other.

Everything that happens at Benedict House has the pupils and their individual needs at heart.  We create an environment in which children are happy, motivated to achieve and enthusiastic about their learning. Our philosophy is founded on the belief that every child is an individual, and with encouragement, hard work and praise can develop their potential to the full and achieve high standards.  It is the responsibility of the school to provide a secure and nurturing environment where pupils enjoy learning and grow into confident and happy individuals ready to face the diversity of future challenges and capable of making informed choices and decisions.

Your child's welfare is of paramount of importance

The social and emotional skills, knowledge and behaviours that young people learn in the classroom can help them to build resilience and set the pattern for how they will manage their mental health throughout their lives.  Emotional wellbeing is a clear indicator of academic achievement, success and satisfaction in later life.

At Benedict House we take emotional health and mental wellbeing very seriously. We aim to cultivate a safe and nurturing environment in which your child feels that they are taken seriously and listened to. Every class provides a wide range of activities that promote this health and wellbeing including the daily mile, circle time discussions, class and team building activities. Our Wellbeing Lead, Mrs White, oversees this provision for the whole school community.
