Supporting our boys


Pastoral care is at the heart of our school. Our aim is to ensure that each student joining Prep is well cared for and is monitored and supported throughout their time with us.

If you have any concerns about the safety and wellbeing of your son, we want to hear about them. Your first point of contact is his class teacher who may then speak to our Educational Needs Co-ordinator (ENCO), who works with our team of specially trained wellbeing and learning support staff.

When necessary, the school may also seek further support from expert professionals in the Island or refer matters to the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) which oversees safeguarding for Jersey's children and young people. For more information, read our child protection and safeguarding policies on our 'For parents' section.

For any child protection and safeguarding or to report a concern email the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead, George Lumley:



At VCP, we recognise the vital role we have in developing each boy's social and emotional awareness alongside his academic education. We know that happy, confident children who trust those around them and feel safe in their environment are best primed for learning.

We also focus on educating each child about the personal and social challenges they might encounter. Through our Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum, we equip our boys with the knowledge and skills they need to be resilient, make sensible life decisions and form healthy and respectful relationships.

Beyond the classroom, through our extra-curricular activities, we offer boys even more opportunities to explore their individual interests and talents, build their self-esteem, develop a sense of camaraderie and teamwork and, importantly, make friends and build their network of support within our school.

Jersey Premium

Jersey Premium information can be found here.

Jersey Premium is a targeted funding programme for schools which has been introduced to help all children get the very best from their education. The funding is designed to ensure that all pupils receive high-quality teaching based on a detailed understanding of their needs or barriers to learning. There are 3 groups of children eligible for Jersey Premium;

  • Pupils who are or have ever been Children Looked After
  • Pupils from households which have recently claimed Income Support
  • Pupils from households with 'Registered' status that would qualify to claim Income Support if they had lived in Jersey for five years

At this time we are unable to publish our evaluation and strategy for Jersey Premium funding due to data protection restrictions on this information.
