Pastoral Care

Our pupils’ happiness and wellbeing is of paramount importance. We firmly believe that a happy, secure, confident child can make excellent progress in all spheres of their school life. We work in close partnership with parents, welcoming communication as a two-way dialogue to provide the best learning environment for all pupils.

Pastoral Care

Before a child starts at Hampton Pre-Prep, they will be able to spend time at the School on one of our New Pupil Days. A dedicated member of staff will also visit every boy and girl in their home, to introduce themselves and make the transition to the Kindergarten as easy as possible.

For pupils entering in Year 3, we run fun team-building sessions to help our new arrivals settle in and get to know their classmates. Parents’ Meetings are held twice a year and include an emphasis on pastoral as well as academic information. We encourage parents to chat to teachers on a regular basis to help us monitor each pupil’s wellbeing.

The PSHE curriculum provides plenty of opportunity for pupils to consider themselves as part of our School community but also as individuals. We promote a sound understanding of democracy, involvement, freedom, respect and tolerance.

As teachers, our role is to help children navigate the difficult times they will inevitably encounter as they grow up. We convey to all our pupils that in life we all make mistakes sometimes and that learning from them matters most. Our pupils develop resilience in an environment of considered well-being.
