Pastoral Support

Pastoral Support

Pastoral Care is an all-embracing term which permeates the whole atmosphere, ethos and tone of our school in our mission to promote the; moral, intellectual, personal and social development of the pupils.
The introduction to Springhall British School Primary Mission Statement well describes the nature of pastoral care in our school.

Our Mission:
1. To provide high quality care and education for all our children.
2. To coordinate children’s learning using a broad-based, balanced and qualitative National curriculum.
3. To work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop optimally.
4. To impact positively on our immediate community through effective links.

Pastoral care is concerned with promoting pupils’ personal and social development and fostering positive attitudes through:

  • the quality of teaching and learning; through the nature of relationships amongst pupils, teachers, parents and others; 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 achieve success.


Pastoral care in Springhall British School Primary encompasses and pervades the whole life and work of the school in which:

  • all the pupils and all the staff feel valued as individuals, feel safe and secure and are encouraged to develop their gifts and talents.
  • the staff work well together as an effective team keeping the pupils’ interests and welfare as their main focus.
  • there are good relationships between teachers and pupils and among pupils within and outside the classroom.
  • the pupils are secure and are protected from emotional and physical harm.

  • the self-esteem of the pupils is promoted and they have opportunities to develop independence of thought and expression.
  • the pupils are taught to work with their peers and to value and respect the opinions of others.
  • our parents are closely involved in and knowledgeable about the life and work of the school.
  • the school strives to promote and sustain good and high standards of behaviour and discipline which reflect an appropriate balance between rewards and sanctions. Disciplinary procedures are implemented consistently by all staff in a fair and positive manner.
