All pupils have access to the Pastoral Team. The Pastoral Team consists of five Pastoral Managers or Officers who are available throughout the day to assist pupils at times when they are not engaging in work in class; whether they are distracting others with a lack of study focus or they are bringing issues/ concerns into school that are affecting their usual settled patterns of behaviour. The Pastoral Team offer the opportunity to talk things through and/ or encourage the development of personal strategies to help the pupil through times of difficulty during the school day. Pupils who attend and use this intervention earn points they could earn within the lesson.
The Pastoral Team is also available to monitor the corridors throughout the day to ensure pupils have someone to talk to in the event of them being unsettled in class.
