Ensuring the safety, welfare and security of our school community is a key priority. We know that, in order to learn, students must feel safe and secure.  Educational research has demonstrated the importance of positive and affirmative relationships as a significant factor in determining successful learners and effective schools.

When considering the welfare of our students we refer to their ‘pastoral’ care and this encompasses their physical, emotional, and social needs. In practical terms, it also refers to the physical environment and security, including building access, school security and healthy lifestyle choices.

School Counsellor

The counsellor, in partnership with teachers, school leaders and parents seek to help students develop socially and emotionally. The counsellor has led workshops on specific topics such as friendship, conflict resolution and acceptance.  

Student Council

Elected representatives from the Student Council and committees contribute to improving the school environment and education provision. The Student Council meets regularly and works in partnership with the senior leadership team and teachers. 

 Tutor Group

All students are allocated to a Tutor Group. Tutor time is an important aspect of the school day, it is a time when the Tutor ensures that their students are organised and prepared for the day ahead. The Tutor acts as a liaison for parents with the subject teachers, reinforcing school policy and ensuring progress is being made across all subjects.

House System

The House System here at Al Bateen, actively encourages and rewards students to be their best, whether it be at a sporting event or in their day to day studies. Students are awarded House Points for; attendance, punctuality, uniform, attainment and so forth. All students and staff members are allocated to a House either: Armstrong, Ibn Battuta, Columbus or Kingsley. House days are occasions when the whole school competes to win the coveted title of House Champions.
