Pastoral Leaders and Mentors

The Pastoral Team is concerned with the support and guidance of young people and their general wellbeing. Members of this team are here to work with students, and you as parents/carers, as we try to remove barriers to learning.

Any simple questions can be sent via a note in your child’s planner to their tutor. If you have any general enquiries about your son or daughter’s wellbeing and/or anything that may affect their learning, then you should contact the Pastoral Leader or one of the Pastoral Mentors. They will be able to discuss more complex issues with you and advise you with regard to appropriate strategies to support your son/daughter.
