Pastoral care in schools is about the support offered to a pupil or pupils by a teacher or school community in relation to the pupil's personal needs, rather than their schoolwork.
All schools are required to have pastoral care in place to include such issues as child protection and bullying.
Occasionally there are schools that go above and beyond to make a real difference to their pupils lives.
