Alongside academic learning, BISS Sentrum is committed to the development of students as individuals, so that after they leave school, they have sufficient self-knowledge to steer themselves towards leading happy and fulfilling lives. This is a joint effort between the parents and the school, and the school’s part is carried out in the following ways;
- Pastoral care. Form tutors come to know their students well enough to monitor their wellbeing, and where students experience difficulties that are unrelated to their academic work, the tutor often notices this well before a student approaches them. Any concerns are discussed at weekly departmental pastoral meetings in which staff compare notes and remedial actions are discussed. Where needed, parents are approached and included in planning any corrective action. Students are encouraged to approach any member of staff, and the school nurse is available for confidential meetings with students. In the Primary School, class teachers monitor their students daily and intervene when and where appropriate.
