We know every child as an individual and tailor our approach to ensure they each grow to become the best version of themselves. Happy and secure children grow in confidence and thus make the most of the wealth of opportunities we offer. We work in close partnership with parents and guardians and we are always available to discuss any problems or worries that may occur. Our care and support extends to parents too and we are always happy to lend a listening ear if the need should arise.

For many children, their time at Abberley Hall begins in our Pre-Prep, where our youngest children are nurtured in a happy, warm and caring environment. Personal, social and emotional development is one of the prime areas of the Early Years curriculum and encompasses all that we do throughout the day.

Our team of well-qualified and experienced Pre-Prep staff support children as they start their Abberley adventure. We focus individual needs, encouraging and supporting pupils in every aspect of their learning journey as they form new relationships and learn about managing their own feelings and behaviour.

The physical well-being and safety of the children in our care is equally important and all of our Pre-Prep and Nursery staff are fully trained in Paediatric First Aid.

Children move on to our Prep School in Year 3 at around the age of seven and every effort is made to ensure that this transition is smooth and worry-free for both pupils and parents alike. In the first three years of the Prep School, each pupil is cared for by their Form Tutor, who is also the first point of contact for parents. Weekly meetings between those who work with these children ensure that appropriate support is always put in place whenever it is needed and that any concerns are discussed with parents without delay.

In the top three years, each child has a Form Tutor, who they register with each morning and who ensures that they are organised and ready for their day. In addition, each senior pupil has Personal Tutor, who acts as a mentor and has an overview of all aspects of the child’s academic and pastoral life at school. The Personal Tutor is available to parents and staff to help resolve difficulties, provide structure, manage academic workload and ensure appointments are not forgotten. He or she is a support to their tutees, an advocate, a sounding-board and, when necessary, a taskmaster.

All teaching staff meet weekly to discuss children who may need support, extra sensitivity or supervision and the Tutors can guide colleagues as to how best to support individuals who need a special approach. We also have a School Counsellor who can provide additional support if it is needed and we have a dynamic SEND team who provide social and emotional as well as academic support.

Weekly meetings of the Headmaster, Head of Pastoral Care, Houseparents, School Nurse and Heads of Year ensure an effective exchange of information concerning individual children.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating; children are happy here at Abberley Hall!

Safeguarding

A culture of safeguarding children is woven into the fabric of everything that we do at Abberley Hall. All staff receive regular safeguarding training and ongoing updates and we ensure that we comply with all legislation as set out in documents such as Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020. Children have a wide range of trusted adults that they can turn to and they are encouraged to talk openly about any concerns they may have. Staff will always listen to children if they have any concern or problem. Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr Bennett-Tomlin, who can be contacted by email on matt.bennett-tomlin@abberleyhall.co.uk For more information about safeguarding and child protection, please see our Safeguarding Policy, available on this website.
