Pastoral Home

On first joining the school each pupil is allocated a Pastoral Teacher. This teacher will be responsible for the pupil's general welfare and progress throughout school. New pupils and parents will be introduced to the Pastoral Teacher before starting school. The Pastoral Teacher should be the first point of contact in the school for parents wishing to discuss any issue.

The school has an agreed Pastoral Entitlement for its pupils. This clearly states the support and help which pupils can expect from the school.
