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.
