Welfare and Pastoral Care

Students’ pastoral care/welfare, safeguarding, and personal development is led by a team headed by the Deputy Headteacher.

Every student has a first port of call, someone to go to for whom they are priority. This is the form tutor.  All tutors are trained in safeguarding and students’ health and wellbeing, including their mental health.

Students’ overall progress across the whole curriculum IS monitored by their Head of Year.  They are supported by a team of non-teaching pastoral officers, who focus on pastoral provision for students, including attendance and punctuality, transition and making friends, being organised, behaviour, liaising with parents and providing the link/signposting to external services such as Early Help for families, social services, voluntary-sector organisations and the police, so that we can provide a joined-up team around the child. 

Some students may also need the support of a learning mentor.  Mentors work with individual students on specific programmes to help them engage with learning, support their progression into Key Stage 4 and beyond, help get them onto the best courses. All Looked-After-Children (LAC) are supported by the Designated Teacher for LAC. 

A named member of the local committee oversees safeguarding on behalf of the Cranmer Education Trust.
