Pastoral Care

The school is a kind and caring school- Ofsted 2023

Key aspects of our pastoral support work are to equip students to thrive as individuals in a rapidly changing world; to enable them to be resilient and resourceful and to maintain a culture in which students are respectful to staff and kind to each other. We work closely with families in support of students’ learning and we strive to ensure the school is a safe environment. 

Our pastoral structure includes a Head of Year whose primary role is to care for students, in the widest sense, overseeing their progress and development in school. 
Each child is allocated to a Personal Development group of approximately 30 students. Each Personal Development group has a base where they meet their tutor every afternoon. Personal Development time has a programme of personal, social and cultural activities alongside close monitoring of student progress and some personal mentoring. 

Our annual assembly programme offers opportunities for collective reflection, sharing of values and stimulus on important cultural, social and curricular topics. Further information can be viewed here
