All schoolteachers are involved in pastoral care, either in their roles as form teachers or year tutors or more generally in their everyday contact with children. Pastoral care is a wide ranging area which involves amongst other things the building in children of social skills and a positive self-image in order to help them be well-motivated contributors to school life and to wider society. It also involves helping children cope with the stress of everyday school life, including examinations; familiarising them with school organisation; and helping children who have specific behaviour problems or personal crises. The book, originally published in 1985, surveys the whole field of pastoral care in schools at the time. It discusses the aims, methods and implementation of a successful pastoral care system. It reviews relevant theories and research work but throughout the emphasis is on practical matters, on helping teachers work out intelligently for themselves how they might improve their performance in this field.
