Saint Kevin's College Pastoral Structure
We are a caring school, a listening school.
At St Kevin’s College Pastoral Care is paramount. We aim to provide wraparound support and care for all our students.
We are focused on creating a safe and nurturing school environment by working collaboratively both within school and with outside agencies.
Our Preventative Curriculum has been designed to equip our students with the skills necessary to positively contribute to society.We utilise the LORIC development model, which we believe enables our students to become well-rounded individuals.
Our pastoral structure encourages the provision of comprehensive support and care for all students.
Form teachers link in with their class daily. This allows for the development of a positive relationship based on mutual respect and care.
This helps students to thrive within a safe and secure learning environment.
Year Heads support their Form Teachers in the monitoring of attendance, behaviour, and learning.
The Head of Key Stage 3, Mrs MacDonald (Vice Principal) and the Head of Key Stages 4 and 5, Mr Conlon, oversee the development, implementation and monitoring of our Personal Development Programme.

Safeguarding (Child Protection)
The Board of Governors and staff at St Kevin’s College recognise that all members of our school community have a full and active part to play in protecting all from harm.
With this in mind, we have implemented a robust Preventative Curriculum which equips our students with the knowledge and skills they need to keep themselves safe.
Our Child Protection Policy seeks to safeguard and protect our pupils, by ensuring that all who work in the school are aware of the appropriate action required where abuse or neglect of a child is suspected.
