A Caring Environment

Our focus at St Faith’s is on supporting each child’s emotional development.

We value each and every pupil, providing them with opportunities to learn academically and grow emotionally. On joining the school, each child is placed with a class teacher (Foundation to Year 4) or a Tutor (Years 5 to 8) who is responsible for their overall welfare. In the Pre Prep, the teachers work under the guidance of the Head of Pre Prep.

In Years 3 to 8, children are allocated to one of four Houses (Bentley, Chaucer, Latham and Newton). Our teachers, Tutors and Heads of House develop a strong awareness of each child in their care. They celebrate the pupils’ achievements and guide and support them through any difficult times either academically, socially or personally. The Tutors, Heads of House and Director of Pastoral Care work very closely together to ensure that pupils are happy and thriving.

Our pastoral care team also works in partnership with the nurses, based in the school Health Centre. They manage the daily medical needs of the children. The dietary requirements of the pupils, including allergies and food intolerances, are supervised by a member of the catering team.
