As the quality of pastoral care influences a school’s ethos, it is of crucial importance all colleagues are able to contribute effectively in establishing and maintaining a climate characterised by positive relations and mutual respect.

Our provision for and management of pastoral care demonstrates our continuing drive towards the personal and social development of all of our children, regardless of their age or ability.

Within the Infant School a strong pastoral ethos underpins all that we do. The care, guidance and support Tanglin provides is one of the many outstanding features across the school. We aim to create an atmosphere in which all of our young people feel secure, successful and know they are valued as individuals. They are encouraged in their learning, growth and social development in a healthy and safe environment and become fully participating members of the school and its wider community.

A high priority is given to developing a child’s independence, personal and social skills in Nursery and Reception and this continues into Year 1 and Year 2 through our Lifeskills curriculum.

School employees are required to report any concerns about a student directly to a Designated Safeguarding Lead member of staff. Parents, students, visitors or any other person wanting to report a concern about a student may do so with any of the School’s Designated Safeguarding Lead staff or any School employee they feel comfortable with.
