Pastoral Care

In the Junior School, we strive for every individual to feel respected, cared for and to have a strong sense of belonging.

A well embedded pastoral system nurtures positive relationships and promotes an ethos that both values and celebrates children as individuals while creating a strong sense of community. Members of staff are committed to ensuring we have an inclusive environment that fosters wellbeing and emphasises personal development. The school has effective policies and takes very seriously its responsibilities to ensure that children are safe. Our excellent team of school counsellors and nurses support and advise students and parents on specific challenges or issues that may arise.

We have incredibly high pastoral expectations, and want all children to flourish and encourage them to stand out from the crowd as a "Tall Poppy".

Underpinning the curriculum we have our RESPECT values- Responsibility, Environment, Safety, Principles, Empathy, Courtesy and Trust. These are developed through regular assemblies, a strong pastoral programme and a wide range of memorable experiences both in and outside the classroom. Emphasis is placed upon children developing the qualities of independence, responsibility and resilience. We want our children to have confidence to take life in their stride and to understand that challenges and mistakes are part of the learning process. The development of children’s ability to communicate and collaborate effectively features prominently throughout school life.

We strive for our children to have a clear understanding of their place in the world and provide them with opportunities to contribute with confidence through leadership and service. This is achieved through our House System, and positions of responsibility across all areas of school life. This is combined with an extensive after school activities programme, where children can excel in their particular areas of interest. Supporting charities and making links within the community is actively encouraged, through the teaching of philanthropy. Our curriculum reflects the school’s international setting and celebrates the diversity of Singapore and the region.
