The care of the children at St Christopher’s is of paramount importance to us.
We celebrate six values, each Half Term, throughout the Year – including Moral Conduct – Communication – Co-operation – Resilience – Independent Learning and Self Esteem. However, each Half Term, we approach these values from a slightly different angle, so this Term we looked at Moral Conduct through the word Kindness. We completed a Kindness Quilt from individual hexagonal acts of kindness.
We also promote a Pastoral curriculum through the Jigsaw Programme and promote Spiritual wellbeing through meditation and our Whole School Assemblies.
We have a longstanding culture of pastoral excellence at the school. Read our quote from our ISI INSPECTION May 2013
“The contribution of arrangements for pastoral care is excellent. The pastoral guidance provided by the school fulfils its aim for pupils to be caring, considerate and respectful. Across all aspects of the school’s life, staff provide exemplary pastoral support for pupils; consequently, pupils feel recognised as unique individuals, whose cultural heritages are valued and celebrated. In the EYFS, staff form strong bonds with the children and promote high standards of behaviour and harmonious relationships. Throughout the school, relationships between pupils and staff, and amongst the pupils themselves, are excellent and form the foundation of both the ethos in the school and its quality of care.”
