Children will be split into small groups for the Group Well-being sessions, which will be hosted by Pastoral Staff, Form Teachers or other teaching staff who know the children well. These sessions are designed to enable the children to talk to their peers about how they are feeling. These sessions will not be recorded and if you do not wish your child to participate, please email your child’s Form Teacher.
Our usual system of House points continues to be used during this period of Online Learning, which is of course linked to our seven core school values. Pupils house point totals will be displayed on the VLE as normal.
House points will still contribute to the house Cup and the fortnightly prize draw which will feature in our online assembles.
Pastoral concerns or queries
It is important that pupils and parents know that we are here to support them during our Online Teaching and Learning Programme. If you have any pastoral or wellbeing concerns, please contact your child’s Form Tutor in the first instance. They might choose to escalate this to the appropriate Pastoral Lead Staff member: Sarah George (KS1 & 2), Martin Barrett (KS3), Louis Dear (KS4) or to Mrs Watts. All concerns will be dealt with as swiftly and comprehensively as they would normally be in school.
