The development and wellbeing of your children is our top priority. By working closely with parents, we ensure every child gets the individual support they need to flourish.
Dulwich Cranbrook offers outstanding learning support and pastoral care – creating a nurturing environment with a strong focus on personal development.
A collaborative approach
The academic progress and pastoral welfare of every child is closely monitored by their Form Teacher and Head of Year.
Throughout each term, parents will have plenty of opportunities to meet with them to discuss their child’s academic and personal development.
This ongoing dialogue means we see the whole picture at school, just as parents do at home.
Learning support & academic mentoring
We understand that children learn in many different ways. That’s why we take the time to understand each and every child within our care, ensuring they’re given the support they need to develop.
This universal approach to learning support and academic mentoring means that no child is left to fall behind.
And where additional support needs are identified, our Learning Support Team apply targeted interventions early on, providing appropriate provision and reasonable adjustments at every stage of learning and development.
Learning support & academic development
Pastoral care is deeply ingrained within our culture and organisational structure. We hold weekly pastoral meetings, so that any concerns that Form Teachers, Form Tutors or Heads of Year have been supporting children with, can be shared with the wider team. This means that our children receive consistent empathy and support as they move from classroom to sports field to theatre.
Our iSpace Wellbeing Programme is embedded within the curriculum, equipping children with the skills and language they need talk about and manage their feelings. And we ensure students have a number of trusted people they can talk to.
In addition to their teachers, children can talk to our medical staff, their ‘buddy’ or ‘mentor’ from within the student body, or our on-site counsellors from the youth mental health charity Place2Be.
