Head of Pastoral Care, DSLtabelh@blanchelande.sch.gg
At Blanchelande, we value each child as an individual with unique gifts and attributes. To be the best version of themselves, we promote and support each child’s mental, emotional and physical health, and our school aims centre of the flourishing of each individual:
‘Lord, help me to grow into the person you have made me to become.’
At Blanchelande College, we want each child to enjoy high self-esteem, have empathy towards others; respect themselves, others and the environment; and have a deep appreciation of our core Catholic values.
The network of pastoral care at Blanchelande ensures there are plenty of opportunities for students to access support if they need it.
The core pastoral team consists of the Head of Pastoral Care, the Deputy Head of Pastoral Care and the Pastoral Mentor. The pastoral team supports the Heads of Phase: Head of Infants, Head of Juniors, Head of Lower Seniors, Head of Upper Seniors and Head of Sixth Form. The Phase Leaders in turn oversee the class teachers (Primary) and form tutors (Senior and Sixth Form) who provide the day-to-day oversight of each pupil’s well-being. All staff are trained to listen to pupils and observe their well-being, and to log any concerns.
