We recognise that schools have a number of our pastoral issues that need to be dealt with sensitively. That’s why Mrs Emily Brawn (our Pastoral Lead and Head of Wellbeing) works on a daily basis with Mr Ross Marchant (Head of Upper Prep) and Miss Hannah Richards (Head of Middle Prep) to promote, support and guide the children in the Prep Department.
We offer and run a number of friendship based initiatives including social lunch groups and CHAT sessions to ensure that all the children feel part of the Chandlings family.
"Part of my role is about making time to be able to listen, and encourage the children to talk. It is important that they know that there is always someone to go to no matter how big or small the issue.”
“As Head of Upper Prep I need to ensure that there is a clear pathway for children, parents and teachers to follow when dealing with a variety of pastoral issues.
"With our Open door policy, concerns are dealt with swiftly and sensitively preventing them from becoming bigger issues"
