Pastoral leaders

It is our aim to develop the whole person and to ensure that each pupil is ‘known, loved and valued’.

Our pastoral care provision tries to enable every pupil to benefit fully from the curriculum and all the other aspects of school life. Each child is unique, with different levels of ability and skill and a different personal psychology (including for example, motivation, self-esteem, confidence and cultural perspective).

Pastoral System

Each pupil is assigned to a tutor group and a House under the care of a form tutor whose role it is to know each pupil on a personal level, developing a relationship of mutual trust and respect. It is their responsibility to monitor and guide the development of each individual pupil ensuring that opportunities are provided for all to make exceptional progress in all areas of school life. The tutor is the first contact between home and school via the student’s planner.

Tutors are supported in their role by Heads of Key Stage and Heads of Year who monitor and evaluate pastoral care within their year group and look for ways of improving the quality of provision.
