Student Health & Wellbeing

We understand that pastoral care is particularly important in an international school with students from all over the world, with different cultures, traditions and languages.

Health and wellbeing

Our Pastoral Care department ensures all students are safe, happy, and learning in a positive environment. It centres around the idea of a continuous feedback loop whereby issues that arise in school and in the wider world inform the curriculums and content taught by teachers in PSHE, Form Time and in specialist subjects, as well as the direction of the House system. 

A student, for example, might be experiencing challenges at home or in school, finding work too challenging or perhaps missing friends and family abroad. A teacher will identify this and record their concerns using a confidential and secure concerns log. Our concerns log allows the Pastoral Care Leader to see the frequency of different types of issues, identify issue triggers, affected students and track students who need assistance. 

This real-time information is then used to implement restorative actions that mitigate future issues, find solutions to problems in which everyone involved can learn and grow from the experience or create management plans for ongoing issues. The main aim of restorative action is to restore a positive sense of wellbeing to those affected while healing and developing relationships in the school community.

The Student Council also plays an increasingly important role in ensuring student concerns, ideas and issues are heard and resolved. 

Physical Health and Wellbeing

In addition to Pastoral Care, we also ensure that our student’s physical health is properly cared for. We have an excellent on-site catering company who provide daily nutritious and healthy lunches, and we even have our own school nutritionist to support children with developing a healthy eating regime.

As well as PE lessons, the school day is structured so that students have enough free time to run around and play outside. Students are also encouraged to take part in one physical activity during their enrichment lessons or after school clubs.
