The main aim of the school’s Pastoral Care and Positive Behaviour Policy is to support pupils in their learning and development and to deal with any difficulties that hinder a pupil’s progress.
Each class has a Form Teacher who delivers a Personal and Social Education Programme. The work of the Form Teachers is co-ordinated by a Year Head who has overall responsibility for the Year Group. All teachers share responsibility for Pastoral Care and the school’s Merit System is used to promote positive behaviour among pupils.
The Primary School Liaison Teacher visits each P7 class prior to their entry to St Paul’s, when pupils’ strengths and weaknesses are recorded and special aptitudes of pupils are noted. Parents are requested to inform St Paul’s Matron of any additional medical information pertaining to their child.
St Paul’s Policy against Bullying ensures that all pupils are supported and cared for. Firm action is taken against any pupil who bullies. If parents have concerns in this area, they are requested to contact the school.
