Pastoral Care

Welcome to our Home

First and foremost, Avondale is a HOME and not an institution. This, undoubtedly, has a huge impact on how children conduct themselves around the setting. We pride ourselves on providing an incredibly nurturing environment where a child’s relationship with their teacher is key. The size of our classrooms and number of children in respective year groups ensures an intimate education experience, where children feel confident in voicing their ideas. We operate an open- door policy where communication between home and school is encouraged. Likewise, we share areas of strength and anything requiring remedial attention as things surface.

Positive Mental Health

At Avondale Preparatory School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. We have a caring ethos, where each individual is valued.

At our school, we know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support.  We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.
