We understand that every student is different. They learn in different ways and have different interests and areas of strength. Individual students also have different needs at different times. Our pastoral care strategy is geared to helping each student discover where their particular talents lie and offering tailored support when they need it.
We have a highly personalised approach to meeting the academic, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of every student. We use information and data from primary schools, our own assessments, national tests and from our meetings with students and their parents to make sure we know our students well and understand their individual needs.
A combination of outstanding learning and teaching, wide-ranging enrichment activities, regular opportunities for emotional and spiritual development and an extensive programme of challenge and support enables us to maximise every student’s chance of success.
Year Team System
The Year Team is responsible for ensuring the welfare of students. They work closely with parents and guardians to make sure a support structure is in place for every student.
Every student is assigned to a form led by a Learning Coordinator. The designated Learning Coordinator is the first point of contact between home and school. They will make sure parents are regularly updated on any issues that are preventing their daughter from learning. They take particular care during the transition from primary to secondary school.
The Year Team is made up of the Learning Coordinators for each year group, a dedicated Head of Year and a Senior Leader. Between them, they see every student in a 1:1 meeting at least once a term. In this way, we can identify and deal with any issues at the earliest possible stage.
