Pastoral Care

Exceptional Pastoral Care

A school should be a place of excitement and wonder, where your child feels safe, happy and welcome. At Abbotsford we place great emphasis on pastoral care and take care to provide a quality education in a safe and friendly learning environment so that your child is happy. Our constructive and friendly partnership with parents enhances this.

The welfare of our pupils is the prime concern of staff, and we believe very strongly that all pupils need to feel happy and secure at school, knowing that they will always be taken seriously and listened to when things are troubling them. The Head is also available for parents to discuss any school concerns that might arise from time to time.

We offer wrap around care to those who need it, starting with Early Morning Club and finishing with a healthy snack at the After School Club.


"The contribution of the arrangements for pastoral care is excellent. Staff know the pupils extremely well and relationships between them and the pupils are warm with high levels of mutual respect."

"Relationships between pupils are harmonious, and in interviews, newer pupils reported that they had settled quickly and were very happy at Abbotsford."
