Pastoral Care

We know that each of our young people will face different challenges as they grow up, be that academically, socially, emotionally or developmentally, therefore we want to do everything we can to help them through whatever life throws their way. For this purpose we have set up a comprehensive pastoral care system, designed to support students in all aspects of school life.

We believe that children learn best when they are well and happy. If there are circumstances which are worrying you or affecting your child’s well-being please talk to us in confidence. If your child has had an injury or an emotional upset, please explain the situation to the class teacher and/or member of the Leadership Team in order for them to receive the appropriate form of support. If we cannot help you ourselves we will put in touch with somebody who can.

These include:

  • Building relationships with peers
  • Rewards for positive behavior
  • Rewards for attendance and punctuality
  • Partnerships with external organisations for those more challenging problems - such as CAMHS and Full Circle

From the start of your child's journey with us through to the end of their time in our home we aim to make sure they feel supported, encouraged and motivated to learn. We do this by introducing them to their class, and giving them a tour of their new home even before they have formally started with us in September. 

We want our halls and corridors to feel like a home-from-home for your children. Our academy is a family - thriving with healthy relationships and positive influences. Our class teachers take the time to get to know each of their students, finding out what your child is interested in, where their aspirations lie and what hopes they have for their year.
