Delivered in association with the National Association for Pastoral Care in Education (NAPCE) and UK Pastoral Chat, ASCL’s Conference for Pastoral Leaders returns in 2019.

Suitable for colleagues with pastoral roles and responsibilities in primary, secondary and post-16 education, delegates will hear about the latest developments and issues in this field, as well as opportunities to reflect and develop their own practice.

Through a combination of plenary and workshop sessions, this year’s conference will focus on the challenges pastoral teams face in a time of change in British society. Delegates will explore a vision for pastoral care that is relevant to schools in the 21st century, meeting the diverse needs of learners in schools, supporting them in achieving their full potential and preparing them for their future. 

The conference will also explore the evolving role of pastoral leaders, with a particular focus on:

  • the impact of a positive learning culture on raising achievement 

  • identifying, understanding, and responding to the challenges pastoral leaders are likely to face in the future

  • developing pastoral structures and systems relevant in modern schools 

  • how effective pastoral care can encourage young people to think for themselves and fully understand their roles and responsibilities in modern society
