Wellbeing & Support

A Secure and Welcoming Community.

From a very early age we have specific assemblies aimed at making the children feel secure and welcome. These encompass all social, moral, spiritual and cultural aspects of school life and make children aware that it is safe to approach staff with any concerns that may arise.

The close-knit community we create is maintained throughout all of our schools, and pupils of all ages are encouraged to engage with their teachers on topics outside the curriculum to promote an atmosphere of trust between the pupils and staff.

Pastoral care takes many forms at Quinton House

Staff

Staff are passionate about developing students' academic progress and emotional well-being, and are committed to carefully monitoring the student's journey as they progress through the school.

Tutor

The dedicated tutor is the first person the child sees every day, this creates familiarity and trust between student and teacher.

Parents

When a child joins Quinton House, the parents become part of the community. We develop a relationship based on honesty and trust, with the child at the heart of our conversations.

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education

We deliver a well-rounded programme of PSHE which helps children prepare for the pressures of the outside world.

Character Education

Character education focuses on the whole child.

It is about the acquisition and strengthening of virtues, the traits that sustain a well-rounded life and a thriving society.

We base our character education around four key aspects derived from the work of the Jubilee Centre for Character & Virtues from the University of Birmingham.

Four important aspects of character

``A place where pupils matter as individuals, and differences are celebrated``

STUDY SUPPORT

Every student is nurtured and supported.

Quinton House School has a well-established Learning Support Department led by Mrs Pates (Head of Pastoral Care). Prep School children sometimes require booster sessions for difficulties relating to phonics, basic literacy or numeracy skills and handwriting which are on offer through our co-curricular programme.
