Supporting our boys

Safeguarding

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, email the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead, George Lumley: g.lumley@vcp.sch.je

 

Wellbeing

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.
