Pastoral Care at St Helen's School

At St Helen's every girl is known and nurtured. Girls - from Nursery to Year 13 - have a class teacher or form tutor who is their (and their parents' and teachers') first port of call whatever the question, be it logistical, academic or pastoral.

The work of the class teachers and form tutors is supported and guided by Section Heads, who work closely together to ensure a consistent approach throughout the School.

Our extended pastoral support team includes experienced nurses and confidential listeners who are on hand to offer support as necessary.

Academic support is coordinated by our Head of Individual Needs.

Parents have regular opportunities to meet with teachers, who can also be contacted by email or telephone.

Equally importantly we bring parents together at various points during their daughters' school careers to share ideas on the challenges facing all those involved in the raising of girls.
