With Others We Succeed

WOWS Pastoral Group

WOWS Pastoral leads work within their individual schools to support teaching and learning by promoting wellbeing and working with staff, children, families and other agencies.

As a group we understand that a high quality of Pastoral Care is central to the ethos in all WOWS schools; it underpins everything that we do and along with a high quality of teaching and learning, it is what our community is all about.

Our Pastoral Groups aims include:

  • ensuring each school is a place where the well-being of everyone is the prime concern of each member of our community;
  • supporting a learning community in which children, young people and adults can realise their full potential;
  • providing safe, stimulating and enriching environments where everyone is able to enjoy his/her best possible health and well-being;
  • encouraging pupils to grow up to be responsible, active members of their community;
  • promoting emotional intelligence;
  • promoting regular attendance and good behaviour as pre-conditions for maintaining high standards of achievement;
  • each child being encouraged to develop his/her own individuality whilst learning also that personal freedom involves responsibility to others;
  • providing a family environment within each school, in which pupils can feel comfortable, safe and supported;
  • providing equal opportunities for all pupils regardless of ability, religion, race, culture or gender;
  • encouraging tolerance and understanding between all members of our community;
  • a clear understanding that effort, kindness and good manners will be valued;
  • developing an understanding of being responsible for oneself;
  • fostering the kind of community where everyone helps each other.
