Pastoral System

At the Olive School, we strive to create a disciplined, caring and happy environment where effective learning can take place. Pastoral Care is central to our ethos and we have a supportive pastoral system which makes pupil well-being its priority. Close relationships between teachers and pupils on a day-to-day basis are vital and fully recognised. The Headteacher knows all the pupils and has overall responsibility for all members of school but the pupil’s class teacher is primarily responsible for the pastoral care of each pupil. The Headteacher and Assistant Headteachers take an interest in all the pupils and are quickly informed of any individual concerns.

Playtimes are well supervised and pupils are encouraged to support each other in line with our ethos statement and Personal and Social Curriculum Policy. Lunchtime Supervisors are employed to care for the pupils at lunchtime. There are many organised games and play zones used at lunchtime and we have a specialist play leader to support lunchtime activities.
