Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

At PMGHS we understand that every learner is unique, learns in different ways and possesses different areas of strength. Pupils have different needs at different times. Pastoral care in our school supports the personal development of our pupils and offers support based on individual needs.

Our Pastoral support strives to ensure that the personal, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of every student is met.

Pastoral System

The Pastoral Team are responsible for ensuring the welfare of students and supporting their personal development. They work closely with pupils, staff, parents and carers to ensure a support structure is in place for every student.

Every student is assigned to a form led by a form tutor. The form tutor is the first point of contact.  They will make sure the Head of Year and the Pastoral Manager is regularly updated on any issues that are preventing pupils from learning.

The Pastoral team is made up of a Pastoral Manager and Heads of Year for each year group. In addition to this an SLT member oversees the pastoral provision in the school.
