Pastoral Care

Pastoral CareQuainton Hall School provides a warm and friendly environment where each child is respected and the staff fully understand their pastoral role is a key priority.  Highs and lows are shared and every pupil has a range of places to turn to when celebrating successes or seeking support and guidance.

In times of difficulty, children can always find a friendly face to help out and every pupil in the School receives regular opportunities to meet with their Form Tutors. Staff are frequently appointed to act as mentors through difficult periods or to help under-achieving children to seek their potential.

An additional safety net is our House System in which the combining of different year groups and the close involvement of four House Leaders ensure that every child has a choice of familiar and trusted faces to help them through any problems.

QHS also values the role played by the pupils themselves in supporting each other. "Tissues and Issues" boxes are often used by pupils in class who want to share their problems in confidence. We strongly believe all our pupils should feel open to discuss any issues they are experiencing at school that could negatively impact their well-being. 

The School Council gives pupils a voice and ensures they play an active role in the shaping of their community.

A QHS pupil is always encouraged to treasure their community and realise that putting others first helps build a better school for everyone.
