Scots College Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care at Scots involves the management of the welfare and activities of students and is overseen by the Pastoral Care Committee.

This committee represents the interests of specific groups of students including the secondary (Middle & Senior) school Houses, international students, boarders, and those with particular learning and medical concerns. School counselling is provided by the school Counselor, who together with the staff seek the emotional, psychological and spiritual wellbeing of all at Scots. This work is ably supported by the school nurses who run the medical health centre during school hours.

The eight Houses provide the primary means of pastoral care and support to students, together with the various inter-house sport and cultural activities. House Deans lead houses with the support of Tutors for each House Tutor Groups, which enable more individual care and conversation about the needs of the students.

The Middle and Senior School have their own unique well-being framework; the PERFORM programme, a development tool that has been designed specifically for students and teaching staff of the Scots College community to reflect the unique and special character of this school. You can read more on the PERFORM framework here.

Scots College is a restorative school. At the heart of our culture and ethos is The Scots Way. The Scots Way is all about building and maintaining positive relationships. The ‘four P’s’ clarify our commitment to building a culture of respect for People, Place, Property and Process.

Where more specialist care is required for students or families, referrals are made to specialist organisations which support the emotional and psychological wellbeing of individuals and family groups.
