Pastoral Care

At Pownall Hall School, Class Teachers take on the primary responsibility of getting to know the children in their forms, both individually and as a group, and to notice and deal with any individual or group worries or issues that may arise.

In practice, the size of the school means that all of our children are known well by many members of staff.  We provide an ordered, secure and supportive environment where children know who they can speak to, should they need to do so, and we create an atmosphere and environment whereby children are open, honest and confident to express themselves. 

At Pownall, we are committed to ensuring that our excellent level of pastoral care is as valued as pupils’ academic progress. We have a Head of Pastoral Care, as well as an Academic Deputy Head.  The Head of Pastoral Care and the School’s Designated Safeguarding Leads ensure that the policies and procedures for Pastoral Care are in place and that staff are always available should parents or children wish to speak to them.  

We are committed to providing excellent pastoral care at Pownall Hall School. The care of our children is uppermost and all staff are committed to ensuring that every child is looked after, safe and happy at school.

Throughout your child’s journey at Pownall, we place an emphasis on developing children’s self-confidence, self-esteem and individuality. We provide a range of opportunities for children to perform, ensure that all children’s thoughts and opinions are valued and that they are able to express themselves in their unique way in a safe and accepting environment. 

Children receive weekly PSHE lessons and have form time at the start and end of the day to bring our children together as a family and discuss topical events, personal achievements, interesting news and much more!

Pastoral care at Pownall is supported by the pupil voice from our School Council, Anti-Bullying Ambassadors and Mental Health Champions. We use our Pownall Promise to discuss our rules and expectations as well as asking that children follow our kindness pledge to be kind to themselves, others and the environment. 

A growth-mindset culture is embedded within our ethos whereby children are positive, motivated learners – they know that mistakes are a part of the learning process and they are confident to ask for help when needed. 

At Pownall, our children thrive in our caring, safe and happy environment.

We are one. The Pownall Family.
