An Expression of Christian Commitment
Each student at Calvin is viewed as a uniquely created individual endowed with specific God-given talents and abilities. The school takes seriously its responsibility to identify, nurture and develop each student’s talents. To do this successfully students need to know that they are loved, supported and respected.
The school’s pastoral care programme is designed to establish and maintain a learning environment within which young people can be confident to explore and develop their talents.
The pastoral care team, including the chaplain, school counsellor, the Dean of Student Welfare, Heads of Year, Home Room and class teachers, work together to ensure students feel valued and supported.
The whole school community – teachers, parents and students – are encouraged to work together in meeting the pastoral care needs of all students.
Through a variety of mentoring programmes each student is encouraged to learn from their mistakes, take appropriate steps to restore broken relationships and persevere in their commitment to build Christian character.
The central tenet of Calvin’s pastoral care programme is that each student knows they are loved and they belong to a school community that cares for them.
