- Pastoral Care
Highly visible leaders support all staff well in managing student behaviour and staff make sure students follow appropriate routines. The behaviour team is effective and well organised, led by a Deputy Head and supported by 2 Assistant Heads, other senior staff, a team of Year Leaders and administrative staff. There is a collaborative approach between the SEND, Pastoral and safeguarding teams, ensuring clear communication and the quick and prompt addressing of any issues.
Effective behaviour and attendance policies are in place with clearly defined consequences that are applied consistently and fairly by all staff. The school’s behaviour policy is clearly articulated and understood by all stakeholders, helping to foster a positive school environment where learners feel safe and can flourish. There are clear whole school sanctions in place, for example, a 3-stage warning system and whole school detention that ensures all matters are dealt with.
Our approach to behaviour encourages many positive character traits such as self-reflection, and self- regulation Also a focus on reconciliation helps maintain positive relationships which helps maintain a positive learning environment.
The school has a comprehensive Intervention programme to help students presenting with behavioural issues for example Outreach Support, a monitored Pastoral Support Programme and referrals to Learning Support.
