A happy student is one who is receptive to
learning. The pastoral care at DES covers any aspect of a student’s school life
which has an impact of the quality of their learning experience.
At DES, teaching classes, tutor groups and subject settings are
organised to ensure that each student’s emotional and all round developmental
needs are well known to form tutors and teachers.
Our pastoral care goals aim to:
· develop high self-esteem in students and support them in becoming effective
learners, able to form positive relationships.
· ensure that each student becomes a valued contributor to the school House
In order to fulfil these pastoral care aims, parents have an extremely
important role to play in maintaining good communication with us, to establish
the “Trust and Partnership” required.
Research shows when parents are fully involved with school, students achieve:
— More success
— Better school attendance
— Increased motivation
— Better self-esteem
Do encourage your child to speak to teachers regardless of how small a problem
may seem. Parents with concerns or worries are encouraged to contact us as
early as possible
