Pastoral Care

Encouraging Individuality

Our school provides a wraparound care system where all staff are skilled at providing the support that children with additional difficulties need.


At The Davenport School, we have a whole school approach to SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning). This means that we work hard to develop positive relationships with our children and the quality of these relationships are at the core of every child’s success.


We want our students to feel listened to, so that we can understand and meet their needs.


The staff work in a calm, positive manner and role model the kind of behaviours they want to see in the students. Praise and reward is used to encourage a change from negative behaviour. The students are encouraged to recognise and talk about their feelings and staff help students to develop ways in which they can express themselves in a constructive and positive way.


Students are mentored by a key person who they have developed a positive relationship with. This means that the pupils are given individual support and time to express themselves and the adult is able to support the pupil with any problems or issues that arise during the school week. 

During the current pandemic there are understandable concerns around children residing in social care and the ability of social care organisations to provide continuity of service.


Based on all available government advice and guidance, and following a review of our current resources, Ethelbert Children’s Services have shared a comprehensive Business Continuity Plan (BCP) with each of its local authority partners and relevant regulatory bodies.


At this time, we do not foresee any significant difficulties in providing ongoing residential care and/or fostering services.


As new information and guidance becomes available, will be reviewing our BCP and updating our partners accordingly.


Should you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
