Pre-Prep & Prep Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

At Burgess Hill Girls Prep School we provide adaptable and appropriate pastoral care.  The class teachers, teaching assistants and support staff will provide support throughout a girl’s journey through the Prep School.  The girls develop their understanding of the world and themselves through our PSHE (Personal Social and Health Education) curriculum, learning to accept and understand differences and embrace challenges.

Additional Educational Support

Small classes and experienced teachers mean we provide a “quality teaching first” approach to education.  At different points in their schooling, many girls benefit from a short term ‘booster’, small group work or 1:1 mentoring to ensure they reach their potential.  Through data and teacher assessments we readily pick up girls who would benefit from this type of additional teaching input.

For girls  with specific learning requirements, we offer 1:1 sessions with our specialist dyslexia teacher, Mrs Harris.  This carries an additional cost and is arrange by the SENCo Mrs Allen.

External Support

In consultation with parents, we may refer a pupil to specialist agencies to seek further guidance on how best to meet a pupil’s needs.  We pride ourselves on having very good relationships with other professionals and with our parents with whom we value honest and open communication.
