Pastoral care at the school is of paramount importance to ensure the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children. Staff genuinely know and care about the children and there is a high staff to pupil ratio.
Pastoral care is an area of the School that has grown substantially in recent years and continues to be a central priority. In our most recent Integrated ISI Inspection (2015), the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development was pronounced ‘Excellent’ – affirmation of The Avenue’s ongoing commitment to this important area.
An important addition to our Pastoral care, is the provision of extra paid support for children who may require it. The Cantabile Care Programme provides a qualified SLT/ behaviour management therapist and a Coordination Quality Therapist who visit twice a week. Children requiring extra support in either of these areas - or both - are identified and parents consulted. Children are seen in small groups and both therapists work in conjunction with our in house SENCO. Parents are regularly informed of their child’s progress and are invited to attend a session initially.
