Pastoral Care

Supporting your child's development

Pastoral Care at My Online Schooling

Every child is unique, with their own individual needs. Although we are an online school, it's important to us that we remove any personal 'distance' from your child's remote learning experience.

Through our pastoral systems, we offer personalised care, support and guidance for every pupil at our school.  Our small class sizes and the House system ensure that your child is known by name, and our teachers understand their unique strengths and areas for development.

What does pastoral care at an online school look like?

Our personalised pastoral support is centred around pupils’ classes in the Junior School and around our Houses in the Secondary School.

This personal attention ensures that we also know about the pupil’s life outside of school: we celebrate their successes, we are supportive and effective when there are difficulties and we are expert and prepared for life’s challenges. 

Pastoral care and wellbeing support underpins our pupils’ entire experience at My Online Schooling and results in safe, academically successful and fulfilled pupils, who thrive in everything they do. We work closely with parents and carers to support every child on their journey through our school.
