We believe that education is a partnership between home and school; as such we operate an open door policy and encourage parents to discuss their son/daughters progress with us. Each Student receives two Progress Reviews and one full school report annually. In addition we operate an annual parents evening and parent information evening for each year. There is also an active parent forum which operates as a communication bridge between school and parents.

Pastoral System

The Pastoral system has a Head of Key Stage 3 and Head of Key Stage 4, designated Heads of Year for each year and a Student Support Officer for each year group. Mrs Stubbs (Assistant Headteacher) leads the pastoral team which is structured as follows:

Head of Key Stage 3
HOY 7 Miss Nuttall Student Support Yr. 7 – Mrs Britton
HOY 8 Mrs Rigby Student Support Yr. 8 – Mrs Stacey
HOY 9 Mr Growcott Student Support Yr. 9 – Mrs Martin

 

Head of Key Stage 4 
HOY 10 Mr Harvey Student Support Yr. 10 – Mr Blank
HOY 11 Ms Powell Student Support Yr. 11 – Mr Dale

These staff are supported by Mr Thompson our Removal Manager. In the first instance the Student Support Officer for your child’s key stage should be contacted should you have any concerns.

The first point of contact for parents would normally be the child’s tutor. However more urgent concerns should be raised initially with the Student Support or Head of Year for your child. Our student Support workers do not teach and are dedicated to the welfare of the students in their year group. More serious concerns may be raised with either Mrs Staton or Mrs Stubbs who is the member of the Senior Leadership team responsible for the pastoral system.
