Caring for our students
Pastoral care is an essential part of the school’s ethos and is central to academic success. There is a strong focus at The King Edmund School on the welfare of every child.
Each student belongs to a House which helps to provide them with the confidence to take part in the numerous House activities and events throughout the school year. It also encourages team work and provides students with the opportunity to mix with students across all year groups.
We are a caring, supportive and inclusive school and we foster an environment where ‘every child has the right to feel comfortable’ and that all students play a part in the KES community. Through the Anti-Bullying Student Support Team run by eighteen of our Year 11 students, to the Student Council run by our Student Leadership Team, these groups provide students with opportunities to get involved with the running of the school and to support each other when needed.
We have a strong pastoral team who work closely together to ensure all our students have the right support they need in order to achieve their personal best.
We aim to foster a spirt of kindness in all aspects of school life and encourage the development of social, moral, spiritual and cultural values through the work we do. All of this is underpinned by traditional British Values.
