Pastoral Care Programme
Inside Ruyton we believe in creating good relationships and developing open communication.
Any concerns are addressed by class or specialist teachers, or the Head of Junior School, as appropriate. A Junior School Counsellor is available to provide individual advice to girls and their parents.
Relationships are promoted across year levels, and with the Early Learning Centre and the Senior School, to widen our sense of responsibility and community. Specific programmes include:
Share Time friends
Cross-Age Buddies (Prep and Year 6, Pre Prep and Year 5)
French Reading Programme (Year 3 and 4 with Year 8)
We support a smooth passage from Junior to Senior Schools through our transition and orientation programme from Year 6 to Year 7, where the Deputy Principal, Head of Senior School, meets every Year 6 girl with the Year 7 Co-ordinators.
Inside Ruyton we offer care for the total well-being of our girls and in this context we seek to provide a respectful, safe and healthy environment.
Any concerns in the first instance are addressed by the Form Teachers and Wellbeing Leaders, who monitor and observe our girls, supported, as necessary, by a Senior School Counsellor and the Deputy Principal, Head of Senior School. Relationships are promoted across year levels with the help of the House system to widen our sense of responsibility and community. Open communication is encouraged and there is a strong sense of belonging within the School community.
Within the Curriculum a wide range of general health and safety issues are covered and we also offer related parent education programmes.
In 2011 Ruyton girls collaborated with staff to develop our iCare policy, which addresses a wide range of adolescent issues, including cyber-safety.
