Pastoral Care & Wellbeing
A happy child is one who thrives. A safe child is one who learns how to take reasonable risks. A child who feels valued will value themselves.
By having a robust Wellbeing programme interwoven through the school, we are able to focus on the development of the knowledge, skills and attributes needed to keep children and young adults safe and to prepare them for life after school. In addition to this, a designated Mental Health Lead will have oversight of the wellbeing of each and every one of our students.
Workshops will be available to parents on a range of subjects, such as how to keep their children safe online, and how to support them as they reach adolescence. We will also work closely with external agencies to ensure we’re prepared if a child needs additional support beyond our in-house expertise.
The House system
The house system, which will run vertically in the school, will play an integral role in monitoring the mental health of our pupils. Older students will be role models for the younger children, and a peer-mentoring scheme will ensure any pastoral issues are closely monitored.
Our four houses are Angelo, Elmo, Rocco and Chambray.
Pupils with more specific needs can access support through the Health Centre doctor, nurses and counsellor as the school. The Health Centre is manned by qualified nurses throughout the day, during term time and the country has a number of major hospitals, to which pupils may be referred to as necessary.
Haileybury Malta Ethos
It is the Haileybury ethos to get involved and try new things, to broaden horizons and gain new experiences.
Remaining physically fit and having an outlet for potential stress or anxiety is extremely important in a rigorous academic environment and the co-curricular provision plays a vital role in this.
As well as being active, we expect all pupils to fuel their bodies and brains properly by eating regularly and healthily.
Working with our catering team the Dining Hall will provide a fantastic spread of food, catering for all pupils, including those with specific dietary requirements.
