Pastoral Care Print E-mail

The Form Teacher is responsible for the pastoral care and progress of the child throughout the school. A weekly PSHE is included in the curriculum for years 1-6. This promotes self-esteem and respect of others. It is seen as a vital part of the pastoral care at St. Christopher’s. A school council has been formed to afford the children a ‘voice’ in matters which affect their lives.

SCAMPS

Scamps (St. Christopher’s Afternoon and Morning Play Scheme) operates to provide supervision by qualified staff from 8.00-8.30 a.m. each morning, and until 5.00 p.m. each evening for parents who wish to use it.

House System

The House system plus a Code of Conduct exist to support, encourage and foster an ethos of hard work and good manners. From Reception upwards the children are divided into four Houses; Blyton, Campbell, Hillary and Johnson which compete in both work and games as well as presenting assemblies.

There are regular House meetings to prepare for events while each child is encouraged to win merits. This promotes bonding and friendships across the age-range.

Within each House, positions of responsibility are given to selected pupils. From Year 6, House Captains and Monitors are chosen to promote consideration and thoughtfulness for others. Overall, St. Christopher’s aims to produce well-rounded individuals.
