The Pastoral Care Journey

Year 7

  • Tutor groups allocated taking into consideration student friendships, parental views, recommendations from Primary school and discussions with the transition co-ordinator.
  • If appropriate, some year 7 students will join a transition group, where they are taught in small classes for a number of different lessons and receive specific support from the transition group team
  • Opportunity to join a three day residential trip in the Autumn term with form tutors and head of learning – an excellent opportunity to build relationships and boost student confidence.
  • Each tutor group is allocated Year 11 student mentors who support the form as a whole and/or on an individual basis.

Year 8

  • Tutor group moves with tutor from Year 7 into their second year.
  • Year 11 mentors continue support.

Year 9

  • In their third year students start to explore and consider their choices for the GCSE subjects to be studied in Years 10 and 11.
  • A ‘Guided Choices’ evening early in the spring term offers students and parents guidance and advice on how to make these choices.  Form and subject tutors play a key role in helping and supporting students at this stage.
  • Guidance is also offered on career paths that might include post-16 school and college provision.

Year 10

  • As they start their GCSE courses a range of pastoral support is available to help students to both maintain academic success and ensure their overall wellbeing. 

Year 11

  • The full range of pastoral care options continues to be available if and when required and is particularly important as the summer exam period moves closer.
  • During this busy year, students also start to consider their post-16 options – which A Levels, which sixth form, which college?
  • Advice and guidance for these important decisions is paramount and the school – including careers guidance team, tutors, heads of learning - works with both students and parents to help make the best choices for each individual.

Throughout

  • The student support centre provides access to, for example, 1:1 intervention, homework club and emotional literacy support.
