The Phoenix Private School believes in the system of Pastoral Care and we operate the following procedures.
As the quality of Pastoral Care improves, so there are likely to be a number of positive outcomes:
It cannot be over-stressed that the pastoral care of all our pupils is the responsibility of the whole community. The way we treat, talk to, interact with and indeed teach pupils will all contribute to the quality of our pastoral care. However, the main focus for Pastoral Care for particular pupils will be their Tutor. At The Phoenix Private School the pastoral and academic oversight of every pupil is primarily the responsibility of his or her tutor and overlooked by the Student Services Department. All issues regarding a particular pupil should, in the first instance, be directed through their tutor. Tutors will then discuss important issues with the relevant member of staff. There will be a weekly Pastoral Care meeting to discuss all issues and ways to resolve the matters. All pastoral care issues can be of a sensitive nature and will be discussed confidentially and with the best interest of the students at the heart. Please refer to the relevant policies for further information.
