St Peter's School
Your son or daughter’s welfare is of utmost importance to us. We need to work together to ensure that they are happy and fulfil their potential. It is important that parents feel able to talk through any areas of concern, or let the School know of any problems a pupil may be experiencing, at School or at home, so that we are aware of them and can offer support as appropriate.
Normally, the first contact made is with the Housemaster/mistress (by phone to the House or by email or letter). The Deputy Head is in overall charge of pastoral care and is readily available.
Appointments for meetings with the Head Master can be made through the PA to the Head Master.
If the pupils themselves have any worries they are encouraged to speak with Housemasters/mistresses or Tutors, and can also speak with the School Chaplain or members of the Leadership Team.
The School has a Designated Senior Lead for Child Protection, Dr Alastair Dunn, who is available to give confidential help to pupils and adults.
Dr Rosie Page is the appointed ‘Independent Listener’ who may be contacted in writing at ‘Ardnamurchan’, Thirlby, Thirsk, YO7 2DJ
The School has a School Counsellor, Pearl Humphries, and she can be contacted on 01904 628736.
