Meet our pastoral team

Pastoral Managers deal with attendance, behaviour, and pastoral welfare issues. They are responsible for the induction of new school students. We support and work with pupils and families to maximise learning for individual pupils. We also contribute to the development of a ‘whole school’ approach to overcome learning obstacles and improve pupil participation in classrooms and  throughout school life.


YEAR 7 – MS GREEN

Ms Green is the Pastoral Manager for year 7. Her experience has guaranteed her status as ‘mother’ of the year group. Her calm demeanour permeates her year group and with a boy heavy year, that is a great bonus. Ms Green has always maintained outstanding parental relationships and the children hold her in the highest regard.  Her high expectations will be a large part of the upcoming year 7 success.
