Pupil Welfare



Al Rabeeh School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the care and welfare of children. Strong pastoral care is central to the ethos and aims of the school.

Aims
The personal and social development of students is a central aim of our curriculum. We want our students to be able to:

  1. Make and sustain good relationships
  2. Have a healthy lifestyle
  3. Be safe
  4. Be able to co-operate with others
  5. Have clear values and attitudes
  6. Make choices with a moral context
  7. Take responsibility
  8. To be self disciplined
  9. To be self motivated
  10. Express opinions sensitively and confidentially
  11. Think critically
  12. Be self reliant

We provide learning support for identified pupils, however specialist resources, classroom environments and staffing are limited. Parents of students requiring special educational needs are advised to discuss the needs of their child with administration before registration to ensure Al Rabeeh School can meet the needs of their child.

Children who are placed on the ‘Special Educational Needs’ register at Al Rabeeh School will be provided with termly Individual Education Plans (IEPs). The SEN Teacher, Class Teacher and parents will work together to set the targets in the IEP.

Bullying
All forms of bullying and harassment are considered to be unacceptable and are not tolerated within the school environment. All incidents are taken very seriously, recorded and monitored. Challenging bullying effectively will improve the safety and happiness of pupil’s and show that the school cares and makes clear to bullies that such behaviour is unacceptable.

We believe bullying is best prevented through the ethos based on mutual respect and equality. The raising of children’s self esteem and self-confidence is central to the work and life of the school.

Communication with Parents
We will communicate with parents in various ways, for example through letters and flyers, newsletters, SMS messaging service, questionnaires and informal events. Parents are invited to parent evenings each term and to see their children perform and enjoy special events and activities.

Al Rabeeh School uses the ‘D6 School Communicator’ to communicate with parents. The ‘School Communicator’ is an application that can be installed onto your computer, tablet or smart phone device which will provide you with information about everything happening at Al Rabeeh School.

For laptops and desktop computers the application can be installed by following this link:

For smart phones and tablet devices please search ‘School Communicator’ on the ‘App Store’ of your device and install ‘D6 School Communicator’.

We are constantly striving to improve on this area as our school/parent partnership is so important. Staff will always be happy to meet with parents to share concerns with an appointment.
