Pastoral care at préfleuri
“If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.” ―Colin Powell
At Préfleuri we believe in fostering positive habits that are essential to student success. Cultivating these habits has a profound effect on our students’ achievement and their ability to thrive both in and out of the classroom.
Through a positive, caring, and encouraging approach we guide, challenge and inspire our students to flourish and blossom into confident, happy, compassionate, and motivated students.

A Big Family
Préfleuri is a warm, friendly, dynamic, and thriving International community. Our commitment to internationalism, and diversity, and our focus on individual responsibility enables our community to recognise, respect, and embrace similarities and differences, as we build considerate and capable global citizens. We believe that our careful and considered approach to each child, and their relationship to our wider community, forges positive habits, develops self esteem, and shapes character traits that set them up for a successful future.
Our small classes, close knit team, and caring family atmosphere enables us to give specific attention to each individual. We are aware of each child’s needs. We take time to listen and talk with our students on a daily basis, checking with their teacher, and supporting them with their homework. Our encouraging, positive and caring attitude nourishes their self-esteem, so essential to their development.
They are guided and inspired in their learning, and for their life, becoming confident, happy, motivated and empathetic students.
We believe that autonomy is a skill, or a habit, that can be learnt, not an inherent capability. Step by step we teach our students to become responsible, independent, and self-motivated learners.
Under the guidance of our whole team our students develop a healthy work ethic where they can set personal goals and manage their time appropriately.
Our virtue programme is a major part of our quest to give our students transferable lifelong skills that will assist them in the classroom, in the playground, on the sports field, mountain tops, and throughout their lives.
The virtue programme promotes personal and social development and embeds a positive ‘growth mindset’ attitude.
We begin each week with a whole school virtues assembly, where a member of our team, a class, or an individual student presents the virtue of the week.
Throughout the week the Prefleuri team, and our students, use this language to acknowledge, guide, correct, and congratulate their actions and the actions of others.
Promoting Healthy Habits from an Early Age
The school has excellent connections with our local medical doctors, paediatricians and specialists that can help and advise us regarding any medical problems.
Our all-inclusive Sports programme, Expedition programme, and after school clubs allow opportunities for our students to discover a wide variety of sports and physical activities.
Meal times are an important part of Prefleuri life. It is a moment where we take time to sit together, to savour the food that has been lovingly prepared, and talk about the day.
