Pastoral Care

Our Junior School community is committed to safeguarding the children who are entrusted into our care, and visitors often comment on the high quality of relationships between our staff and pupils.

Our Safeguarding Team ensures that policies pertaining to the safeguarding and well-being of pupils are regularly reviewed and made available to our whole school community.

Pastoral Policies

A range of policies are in place to safeguard the children who are entrusted into our care.

Hard copies are available from our Junior School Office, upon request.

 

Personal Development

We believe that boys flourish when they are known individually and feel valued, within a supportive and encouraging environment. High priority is given to the promotion of their self-confidence and self-esteem.

A structured programme of Personal Development & Mutual Understanding (PDMU) is used to promote our pupils’ emotional literacy and build their resilience to cope with life’s challenges.

Positive Approach to Behaviour

We promote the development of positive and supportive relationships at Junior School, and encourage our boys to be aware of their rights and responsibilities and understand the effect their actions can have on others.

Junior School’s SUPER Code and House System appeal to our pupils’ highly competitive spirits, and enable their fine efforts to be celebrated and rewarded.

Our boys frequently receive praise from visitors in relation to their courteous manners and exemplary behaviour. It is evident that they wear the Campbell Colours with pride and love being ambassadors for the College.

E-Safety

Children today are born into a digital world, and it is our responsibility to ensure that they use it responsibly. The safe use of technology is promoted within each Year Group at Junior School, and E-Safety Workshops for parents enable them to develop greater awareness of online dangers and become more skilled at monitoring their children’s online behaviour at home.

Health Promotion

As a health-promoting school, our pupils are encouraged to make healthy lifestyle choices through visits to the school by health promotion agencies and their work in the following Areas of Learning: Personal Development & Mutual Understanding, The World Around Us and Physical Education.

Our boys are encouraged to choose healthy break-time snacks.  To safeguard those with allergies, the College is a nut-free zone.

All food is cooked from fresh by the College chefs, and meals are served to Junior School and Kindergarten pupils in the Dining Hall of the Senior School. The four-week menu cycle, which is developed by our Catering Manager in consultation with our whole school community, meets the required Nutritional Standards. Special provision is made for those with specific dietary needs.
