Pastoral Care

What is pastoral care in schools?

Pastoral care is the measures a school takes to ensure the physical and emotional wellbeing of students, and is essential to enable learning to take place. In SSQV schools, pastoral care extends to every aspect of school life in order to foster the personal development of our tauira alongside their academic progress.

Why is pastoral care important?

We ensure tauira are safe and happy at school. SSQV recognises that education and wellbeing are closely linked, and studies have shown that students with good health and wellbeing are likely to achieve better academically. Good pastoral care in kura is also fundamental to character building and development of social skills, critical to life within and beyond school.
