The pastoral care and well-being of our children is paramount. By actively celebrating our pupils' personal achievements, we extol a belief that personal growth and development deserves as much recognition as academic and sporting or musical achievements.
Merit Assemblies held each week award accolades including Sports Star, French Speaker, Musician and Star of the Week, alongside a special Commendation Assembly each term to honour those children who have displayed excellence, effort, achievement, attitude or contribution. High expectations of learning behaviour, combined with caring pastoral guidance, empower our confident learners to achieve excellent results.
The behaviour we encourage and expect from our children at RPPS is based on a whole-school ethos of respect and tolerance. All children subscribe to the RPPS Code of Conduct which emphasises the importance of good manners and treating others with kindness, thus guaranteeing a calm and learning-focused environment which is key to all successful learning journeys.
All members of staff at RPPS place the utmost importance upon Pastoral Care. The Class Teachers ensure that they monitor the progress, development and well-being of each child under their care so that each pupil feels they can discuss any issues they might have with someone who knows them well. The Heads of Lower and Upper School lead the Pastoral Care for their respective sections, and this is overseen by the Deputy Head.
