Pastoral Care

The college takes great care to ensure that all of our students are valued and treated with respect. This affects the way they respond and treat each other and helps to embed the family ethos that is at the heart of what we do. We get to know our students as individuals; we make sure they are supported and know to ask for help if they have any concerns. Students are appointed a Form Tutor who is in contact with them during registration and Form periods and possibly as a subject teacher. For parents, the tutor is also their key liaison person. In addition, Form Tutors are coordinated by Heads of House who build close relationships with the house as a whole.

As students journey with us, our Heads of House and Achievement Officers monitor their academic progress, behaviour, punctuality and attendance.  They regularly lead house assemblies and organise social activities. There will be occasions when the Heads of House and Achievement Officers may need to work with parents to support a child’s academic and emotional progress in school.

Heads of House and Achievement Officers have access to support from many outside agencies. Parents will always be advised of support available e.g. counselling referrals, pastoral mentoring and behaviour support plans.
