Pastoral Care

​Exceptional pastoral care is another key element of our approach at the New School.

In this small, intimate school community, everyone knows everybody else and this helps to foster the warm, familial atmosphere that our children and parents value so highly. Our aim is to create a home from home for these young children in our care.

To achieve this, we provide a secure, caring, safe environment where the concerns of each and every child are important to us all, no matter how small the issue may seem to be. We want our children to feel understood and confident that they can raise a concern with any one of us and know that we will listen to them.

Although mornings are usually busy, staff are always happy to have a brief word with parents at drop off or, alternatively, we can arrange a longer meeting at the end of the school day.
