The Assistant Principal (Pastoral) main responsibility is to oversee the Secondary school’s student cohort and secure the highest pastoral outcomes. EMS understands discipline, pastoral support and student leadership as outcomes that occur on a continuum. The Assistant Principal (Pastoral) is directly responsible to the Secondary Principal and Head of School and is expected to develop disciplinary, pastoral and student leadership techniques, structures, processes and materials and coordinate their implementation with teachers and assess the effectiveness of implementation so as to produce optimal student welfare in the Secondary School.
Central to this undertaking will be the development of a robust House System as a key point of student attachment and pastoral mechanism.
