Our Pastoral Care department ensures all students are safe, happy, and learning in a positive environment. It centres around the idea of a continuous feedback loop whereby issues that arise in school and in the wider world inform the curriculums and content taught by teachers in PSHE, Form Time and in specialist subjects, as well as the direction of the House system.
A student, for example, might be experiencing challenges at home or in school, finding work too challenging or perhaps missing friends and family abroad. A teacher will identify this and record their concerns using a confidential and secure concerns log. Our concerns log allows the Pastoral Care Leader to see the frequency of different types of issues, identify issue triggers, affected students and track students who need assistance.
