Pastoral Care

Hinchley Wood adopts an holistic approach to pastoral care, encouraging all students to achieve not only academic success but also helping them develop and become valued, individual members of society.

The HWS core values reflect this - throughout their time at Hinchley Wood (and beyond) the school strives to help all students to be: confident, considerate, determined, enthusiastic and independent.

Pastoral care begins before students join the school with an introductory ‘taster/induction’ day during the summer term before they start, giving them a chance to meet fellow students, their tutors and generally get a feel for their new school environment.

Form tutors are key, constant supporters in a student’s school life, who, wherever possible, will move with the tutor group as they progress through the school.  Form groups meet twice a day for morning (10 Minutes) and afternoon (20 minutes) registration and join the rest of the year group for a weekly assembly.

Registration/form times are an important part of the school day - as well as monitoring attendance and general progress, it is an opportunity for form tutors to address specific issues that may be raised by peers, teachers or parents; it also tends to be the time when firm friendships and relationships are formed.

Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) Programme runs throughout the school year and students with a forum for gaining and developing knowledge and understanding of the issues affecting young people both as individuals and members of the wider community.
