Pastoral Care - House System
Pastoral care is a very important aspect in our school and it is lead by tutors, the Heads of House and the Pastoral Deputy. Each house has a Head of House, 8 groups and one tutor for each group; each tutor must strive to ensure the students`wellbeing and that all students are reaching their full potential.
Their responsabilities are:
- Be aware that good pastoral care will intrinsically include setting targets and be fully caring for the students well being.
- Planning tutor period activities that include a review of how the week has gone for the students, it must be a time when the tutor group all come together and work towards/on something. Also be a time for solving all types of issues that might affect the group, or some members of the group. This also allows more contact time and integration between tutor groups.
- Foster a good relationships amongst tutees and make activities to promote this aim.
- Take opportunities to oversee the student’s academic and social development.
- Help students’ set, review and reach academic and social targets that throughout the year students will have. Tutors should monitor students to use the reports reflection sheet.
- Support and assist students and the school in the process for selecting options for IGCSE subjects and IB subjects, as well as knowing preferred post IB destinations of tutees.
- Take all opportunities to promote house activities and a sense of belonging.
