Pastoral Care & Wellbeing

Pastoral Care & Wellbeing

A journey of values and beliefs

At Bishopsgate, we understand that life is a journey, and from the very beginning of their time with us, your child is gently immersed in our core values and beliefs. Our focus on pastoral care starts right from day one, ensuring that your child feels safe and supported throughout their entire journey with us.

Building respect and empathy

We place great importance on fostering respect and empathy amongst pupils. Through dedicated, age-specific pastoral care, we instil in them the ability to understand and care for one another. This empowers our pupils to effectively resolve conflict; a vital life skill that will serve them well beyond their school years.

Embracing mistakes and cultivating resilience

At Bishopsgate, we believe in the power of learning from mistakes. We encourage our pupils to explore, make choices, and learn from the consequences, thus cultivating resilience and a growth mind-set. This approach empowers them to face challenges with confidence and determination.

A unique environment for growth

Grounded in our values, we have created a unique environment where all our pupils feel safe, happy, and eager to learn. These formative years are essential, and we strive to provide an atmosphere that fosters growth and development in every aspect of their lives.

Developing character for lifelong success

We whole-heartedly value the importance of character development. Our curriculum is thoughtfully designed to provide abundant opportunities for your child to nurture their character, ensuring they are equipped for success in life beyond the classroom.

Positive behaviour management

At Bishopsgate, we believe in accentuating the positive. By highlighting good behaviour, such as effort and manners, we foster a sense of pride among our pupils. This positive behaviour management approach encourages them to repeat these desirable behaviours, while motivating others to follow suit.

Clear expectations and supportive guidance

We openly define our expected behaviours, guiding our pupils on their journey with simple and understandable language. Our behaviour management policy seamlessly spans across all year groups, ensuring consistency and a supportive environment for all pupils.

Embracing failure

Understanding that setbacks are part of the learning process, we embrace failure as a valuable tool for growth. Within the safety net of our caring environment, children learn from their mistakes and make better decisions, propelling them towards a brighter future.

A story of nurturing happiness

Our focus on pastoral care and wellbeing ensures that every child is given the opportunity to thrive in what is truly an inspirational school.

We are proud of the nurturing community we have built at Bishopsgate, where pastoral care and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do. Through a dedication to instilling values, cultivating character, and embracing mistakes, we aim to empower our pupils for a successful and fulfilling life beyond their time with us.
