Pastoral Care

At MIS every student is seen as an individual, with their own unique talents, abilities and needs.

Our excellent educational programme is complimented by our commitment to a threefold approach to pastoral care, personalised learning and student well-being.

Pastoral care is at the heart of our successful school and is firmly embedded in the aims, values, beliefs, and norms of the school. As we focus on personal development and well-being, and prioritise happiness and welfare, we recognise pastoral care as the foundational element which supports learning.

Every teacher and member of staff is devoted to the personal, social development, education and care of all students across the school.

Critical to our success is how well staff know their students’ unique circumstances so they can learn effectively.

At the core of our pastoral care is the Homeroom Team. Homeroom teachers have regular contact with their students through a daily homeroom period, where they get to know and build positive relationships with their students, enabling students to feel valued and developing in them a sense of belonging so that they are able to fulfil their potential and thrive in school.

Pastoral care touches every part of MIS life and is felt at all levels of curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment, school organisation, ethos and environment, partnerships and services.

Ultimately, the best care is defined by the quality of relationships, strong partnerships, high expectations and how MIS respond to the needs of specific students and groups
