At Davenies, Pastoral Care is at the epicentre of what we do.
We believe that happy, confident pupils become more caring individuals equipped with a greater sense of perspective and emotional control to grasp all the possibilities life offers. Furthermore, happy pupils make better learners. We strive to find the balance between a child’s need for individual attention and an understanding of the requirements that life within a busy community entails. Each one of our pupils develops their confidence and understanding of society, and they do so in a safe and secure environment.
The school is split along pastoral lines: Pre-Prep (Reception – Year 2), Junior School (Years 3 & 4), Middle School (Years 5 & 6) and Senior School (Years 7 & 8), each with its own Pastoral Head. The Pastoral Team (which includes our Matron and the Head of Learning Support in addition to the Pastoral Heads) convenes regularly in order that we continue to understand and meet the needs of individual pupils.
As a result, Davenies is a happy, vibrant, lively but purposeful community.
