Safeguarding & Pastoral Care

Aloha College Marbella Safeguarding Statement

Aloha College Marbella is wholly committed to keeping our students and the community safe and healthy. The wellbeing of every child in our care is at the centre of everything we do.

Safeguarding legislation and government guidance states that safeguarding means: 

  • Protecting children from maltreatment 
  • Preventing impairment of children’s health or development 
  • Ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care 
  • Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcome.

The Pastoral and wellbeing team at Aloha College Marbella consists of:

Mr. Francisco Escobar – Principal & Head of Pastoral

Ms. Louise Verinder – Designated Safeguarding Lead & Pastoral Care

Ms. Emma Saunders – Primary Designated Safeguarding Lead & Pastoral Care

All staff are trained annually in safeguarding. 

The Pastoral and Wellbeing team are available to listen to students’ concerns and are readily available to give them a ‘safe space’ to discuss any issues which they may have. Confidentiality cannot always be maintained and depending on the nature of any disclosure, the team will follow the school’s Child Protection Policy. The school always endeavours to maintain positive and transparent relationships with parents. 

We want all our children to be happy and successful. Our aim is for all our pupils to integrate fully into the life of the school.

Our pastoral care is outstanding and supports every pupil’s learning journey.

As our most recent report from the Independent Schools Inspectorate confirmed:


“Pastoral care and the arrangements for safeguarding pupils’ welfare, health and safety are excellent”.

“An extremely caring, supportive ethos engenders a highly empowering learning environment, which enables the school to fulfill its challenging aims”.

Personal Growth and Development

Every child is a unique individual and because of this, a universal strategy for personal growth and development cannot exist.
Aloha College aims to help our pupils in their physical, emotional, intellectual and social well being to promote their own personal growth and development in their learning journey.
We aim to empower them by discovering where their full potential lies. This results in a more enjoyable and meaningful force which will be evident in the relationships they form and the self-confidence they develop enabling them to reach their academic goals.
