Pastoral Care

“The pastoral support provided by the school is a clear strength."

“Leaders have created a truly inclusive school where every pupil is valued and cared for.”

Ofsted report 2018

We treat all students in a caring and responsible manner as individuals, all equally important and deserving of attention.

Form Tutor: All students are placed in form groups upon their arrival at Woodrush High School. The form tutor is the student’s first point of contact for their pastoral needs. Form tutors see their students at the beginning of the school day during their registration periods. This gives them the opportunity to monitor the attendance, punctuality and behaviour of the students in their form on a daily basis.

Head of Year: Every year group has a Head of Year. The Head of Year will oversee the form tutors and monitor the behaviour and attendance of their year group. The Head of Year will also coordinate rewards and incentives for the students in their year group. As well as this, Heads of Year will also provide an extra layer of pastoral support for your child and will help them with any problems they may be encountering in their school life.

Progress Leaders: Each year group also has its own Progress Leader. This non-teaching member of staff works alongside the Head of Year to remove any barriers your child may have that is impacting on the progress they are making. If your child is struggling in a particular subject the Progress Leader will look to put in place a programme of intervention to support your child’s progress. 

Mental Health Lead: Our Mental health Lead provides further additional pastoral support for our students. This non-teaching member of staff works with individuals that require support with issues that may affect their mental health and wellbeing, including low self-esteem, depression and anxiety. In addition, this member of staff will also hold one on one mentoring sessions with individual students that require more intensive support
