Pastoral Care

Children’s well being and happiness is at the heart of all we do. Bilton Grange is an open and inclusive community, and visitors often comment on the friendly and warm atmosphere they find at the school. A happy child is one who can fully engage with school life, and do well, and we do all we can to ensure that their journey through school is as happy and trouble free as it can be.

We actively foster an open community at Bilton Grange, and we work in partnership with parents to deal with issues if they arise. Through an effective system that is in place from our pre-school year through to 6th Form (Year 8), our ‘open door’ policy means that parents get to know staff well, and feel able to communicate easily and openly with them throughout their child’s time at Bilton Grange.

Robust policies are in place, and staff are given relevant and frequent training, and ISI and OFSTED inspections have praised the strategies and structures in place, with inspectors commenting – “the school has excellent arrangements to promote the pupils’ welfare, health and safety, within a very happy, caring and inclusive environment” (ISI).

We have a full-time school nurse, who lives on site and knows all the children well. Together with a team of matrons and first aid-trained staff, we are equipped to deal with the inevitable medical issues that will always be part of childhood and school life.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and parents to share this commitment.
