St Dominic’s School will, as far as is possible, remain open to support the families of key workers and the vulnerable children we serve. If you are uncertain about what to do please email office@stdominicsschool.org.uk and we will respond to you urgently.

Pastoral Support

There is a very strong pastoral care system in the school. All pupils and students are supported by their Form Tutors.  Parents and staff are able to have weekly communication through home/school books. Much of the work of the pastoral care team involves close liaison with parents.

If required, advice can be given to families on how pupils and students can be given the most appropriate support in their home and working environment, to best maintain their emotional welfare and social development.

Pupil Pastoral Panel

The Pupil Pastoral Panel is a service that gives help and support to pupils and students. At St Dominic’s, we are pleased to be able to offer a range of interventions to suit the varying needs of our school community. The Pupil Pastoral Panel can offer help in the following areas:

  • Behaviour support/management (including individualised timetables, Individual Behaviour Support Plans)
  • Emotional support (including counselling, drawing and talking sessions, ELSA)
  • 1:1 Art and Music sessions to support sensory/emotional regulation
  • Peer mediation
  • Referrals to external agencies (e.g. CAMHS)

In the first instance, please contact your child’s form tutor, who can then refer to The Pupil Pastoral Panel.

St Dominic’s School also has a team of Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists who in some instances may be the best placed professional to support with a pastoral issue. If you feel that your child needs input from these services over and above that which is stated in their EHCP, please follow the above process.

 

The residential special school provides highly effective services that consistently exceed the standards of good. The actions of the school contribute to significantly improved outcomes and positive experiences for children and young people. Ofsted – March 2019
