Promoting a Safe and Happy Community
We believe that school should be a space where children can be happy and free from fear, knowing their rights will be respected while understanding the need to respect the rights of others. Specific rules, rewards, and codes of conduct help foster this environment, which are carefully implemented through the Prep School’s pastoral programme:
Class Teacher as a Role Model
The child’s class teacher leads pastoral care in their class. Fair conduct and relationships with others are modelled by the teacher, with the help of the teaching assistant.
Knowing Individual Children
All staff members take ownership in getting to know each pupil in order to better guide and encourage them.
Every week, children will be given the opportunity to share their challenges and celebrate their successes with classmates.
Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE)
This special subject covers aspects of health and social and personal development that guides pupils to be good citizens.
Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education
Here, pupils learn about different beliefs in order to develop a better understanding of cultural differences and similarities. They will also learn to tell the difference between right and wrong choices, and how these choices impact those around them.
A special Prep School system that rewards the group for conduct in line with the ECiM ethos. See below for more information.
Pupils attend weekly assemblies, where positive values like ‘Patience’ and ‘Telling the Truth’ are discussed to develop an understanding of the subject.
It is here that elected pupils learn the value of teamwork and pick up leadership skills as they plan and develop events. Pupils can also share the challenges they are facing in order to find a solution in a group setting.
This box allows children to share their ideas to improve the Prep School, which will be discussed at the School Council.
