At St Francis Xavier, we believe it is important to support every individual who is involved with our School. We believe that good pastoral support focuses on nurturing the individual needs of each person.
All staff as St Francis consistently model to students how to look after themselves and others; encouraging them to seek help, support or advice whenever they need it. Pastoral care underpins personal development and we know from experience that with outstanding pastoral care, students feel they belong and their self-esteem is able to flourish because they feel valued and cared for.
Supporting the pastoral needs of pupils sometimes involves working with external agencies. In these situations, we ensure that confidential, professional, non-judgemental and sensitive service is provided.
The role of the Pastoral Support Team:
Childrens Mental Health Week!
This years theme is 'express yourself.' All of our children will be getting involved throughout the week and taking part in different activities.
