Pastoral Care

Bravely, faithfully, happily. As our motto suggests, the happiness of our children is a fundamental part of education at St. Aubyn’s.

We aim to achieve this through providing caring staff who have a child-centred approach. The class teachers from Nursery to Year 5 and the tutors for Years 6 – 8 are responsible for the children’s pastoral care and emotional well-being and are the first line of communication with parents/carers. The Heads of Department also support with pastoral matters when required.

The parents… feel that their children are happy and well looked after at the school.

We have two full qualified nurses who work at different times ensuring cover from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm during term time. Several first aiders are also able to treat minor illness and injury occurring at school.

Our PSHE programme, Jigsaw (, brings together emotional literacy, mindfulness, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. In addition our systems of rewards, including a strong House system, emphasize the positive aspects of pastoral care.

We want our pupils to enjoy coming to school in the hope that this will lead to a love of learning that they can take with them to their next school and into adulthood.
