Here, at UK Pastoral Chat, we connect with many professionals who work tirelessly in education to make a difference to the lives of our young people, we witness a lot of great practice, we hear a lot of thought-provoking ideas underpinned by passion and genuine care. We hope that the Pastoral Periodical will capture and convey this knowledge and enthusiasm to our readers.

We believe that when we work with children, we become pastoral leaders by default; we deal with pupils’ problems and anxieties in our academic lessons, in registrations, at lunch times on the playground. We hope that no matter what post you hold in your workplace, you will find something that will be of interest, something that will help you to keep on developing as a pastoral leader, and something that will challenge your thinking.

We are very grateful to every single one of our contributors, who found time in their busy schedules to share their expertise with us. Without you, this Periodical wouldn’t have been possible.

Thank you for your support, we hope to continue working together in future.

Warm wishes,

Maria O’Neill
