Pastoral Care

St. Martins is a small family orientated school. Pastoral care at St Martin’s is an essential part of what makes our School community so special. Our children and staff understand the importance of supporting one another and believe that a caring and compassionate approach to life must be central to all that we do. Within this pastoral framework, our pupils acquire the self-confidence to fulfil their potential.

The school prides itself on developing positive relationships between peers and adults alike. Promotion of the older children supporting our younger members consolidates this ethos of a family environment. By deploying a house point system, electing Head Boy, Head Girl, eco warriors and House Captains, we encourage each child to make a positive contribution to school life while demanding the highest standards of behaviour, courtesy and self discipline.

The school operates an open door policy, where parents are welcome to discuss their child’s progress with class teachers or the headmaster at any time. Formal scheduled Open Evenings are held once a year during the Spring term and written end of year reports are provided in July.

Our children feel happy and safe, developing excellent relationships with their teachers and knowing that they are part of an inclusive and understanding community.
