Primary School

Pastoral

Pupils will be organised in a variety of ways throughout their schooling experience.

Classes: Reception and Primary pupils are organised in classes of 30 with a form teacher responsible for academic and pastoral care.

School Houses: when they join the school, all pupils are assigned to one of the following four Houses: Matthew, Mark, Luke or John. The House system will encourage both a sense of belonging and competitiveness as this will be where most of the school’s extra-curricular activities will take place such as business venture competitions, concerts, and fund-raising activities. This is also where student peer mentors will be used to help advice and support younger students.

Student Council: this is a forum where students can raise issues or plan student led activities on behalf of the school. The Council will include representatives from different sections of the student population of the school such as gender, minority ethnic background, religious background, Children who are Looked After, etc. This group will be led by students with one representative reporting to the school’s governing body. This group will be led by students with one representative reporting to the school’s governing body.

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) learning cuts across the whole school through every lesson.

At King Solomon, British values are regularly promoted.
