Within year teams we have a Director of Learning, an Assistant Pastoral Lead and a team of tutors. In order to strengthen the work we do with our students, we also have fully trained learning mentors offering 1-2-1 support/counselling; our Hive operates as a calm, quiet environment for smaller group work; our Inclusion Centre operates with a similar calm approach, for children to be supported with behaviours.
The school behaviour policy is also found on the website and must be adhered to at all times, in and around school. This policy is essential to a constructive learning environment and helps develop positive relationships in classrooms.
We strive to provide a happy working environment in which every student is valued as an individual. We aim to give the care, support and help which will enable every child to make the most of his or her academic potential and develop as a well rounded individual. Monitoring student’s progress across the curriculum is therefore part of the pastoral work in key stage 3 and 4.
Parent are kept closely involved in any developments concerning their child and may feel free to contact pastoral staff at any time regarding their son or daughter. The pastoral system recognised the importance of parents and teachers working together so that each child can derive the maximum benefit from their time here at Boldon.
