Pastoral Care

Just like our teaching and learning, our commitment to pastoral care is as strong as ever at this difficult time

Pastoral Care

Just like our teaching and learning, our commitment to pastoral care is as strong as ever at this difficult time

It is important that students and parents know that we are here to support you during our Online Teaching and Learning Programme. If you have any pastoral or wellbeing concerns, please contact the staff on the following pages.

All contact details can be found on the Additional Support page.

Your child’s form tutor or class teacher should be your first point of contact with the school.

They record student attendance and complete the daily wellbeing check and the form tutor will also have an academic and behavioural overview of your child.

Your child’s Head of Year will have the most detailed academic profile of your child and they will be on hand to resolve any learning, behavioural or emotional issues.

They will be contactable throughout the school day and will be proactive in informing you of any issues.

Rewards System

House points will continue to be awarded to students throughout their online learning. The house point totals will be monitored by form tutors and Heads of Year; rewards for those students reaching the set milestones will be sent by post.

House System

The houses will continue to compete for the House Cup through the collection of house points as well as students accessing the house competitions provided by their form tutors. Updates will be shared with the students from the Housemaster, Mr Macmillan.

Charity Work

As a school we will still be taking the opportunity where possible to raise money for the NHS and our local charities.

School Counsellor

If at any point you students need to speak to someone at school then the form tutor remains first point of contact. In addition, we can also signpost children to the most appropriate organisation to further assist them.
