Yr 7 & 8 Scientists Enjoy @Bristol
Pupils from years 7 and 8 went to @Bristol where they spent the day discovering different aspects of Science. Some of their comments can be seen below...
A great deal of emphasis is placed on pastoral care at Leweston. We are entirely committed to providing an environment that inspires warmth, confidence, creativity and personal development in all our pupils, whether they attend Leweston as a day pupil or board on a flexi, weekly or full time basis. A supportive programme of pastoral care ensures that every pupil's personal welfare is monitored and any concerns dealt with sensitively and effectively. It helps that the school is of such a size that all staff know pupils as individuals.
The first point of contact for pupils is usually their Form Teacher who sees them every day and has a role in monitoring their academic progress as well as being concerned for their personal wellbeing. The Form Teachers are supported by a wider pastoral team which includes the Senior Teacher in the Junior Department, the Director of Boarding, Housemistresses, the Health Centre team and the Chaplaincy Co-ordinator. Pupils are also encouraged to support each other with the older pupils playing an important part in the care of the younger ones.
The House system at Leweston encourages a sense of belonging within the school; we do not operate separate day and boarding Houses. The presence of this vertical House system through the school enables friendships to be formed across year groups and a variety of House activities foster and support the pastoral aspect of the Houses.
