Pastoral Care

The care of our pupils is our highest priority. Each child is known and cared for as an individual by their Class Teacher. In addition, the School Chaplain, Acting Head, Deputy Head, and Head of Pre-Prep all work together to ensure the wellbeing of every pupil.

In a school where groupings are deliberately small, no child can become lost or overlooked. In our experience, new pupils and parents quickly feel part of the Grace Dieu family. It is important that the school is a place where children can make mistakes and learn from them. Our approach to disciplinary matters is kindly, but firm and clear.

Health & Wellbeing

We have a full-time School Nurse and a fully equipped treatment room should your child become ill during the School day.

Our nurse is also available to discuss any health issues such as allergies and intolerances that may affect your child during their time at School.

Food & Nutrition

All of our food is all cooked on site by our chef and his catering team and served fresh to the children.

In addition to an extensive lunch time menu, full time pupils also receive a drink and snack at break times and again after School.

We are able to cater for most food allergies or food intolerance issues.

We do ask parents and visitors to the School to remember that Grace Dieu is a ‘Nut Free’ School. We have a number of pupils who are allergic to nuts and therefore ask everyone to be vigilant about not bringing nuts into School. To help, we have created a list of snacks, crips and biscuits that do not contain nuts (at time of writing). Please click here to view or download.
