Pastoral care and good relationships are regarded as vital ingredients in getting the best out of pupils and students and allowing them to achieve their potential. The welfare of pupils and students is a prime concern of all our staff and the school has a carefully structured, successful pastoral care system. This is based around the group tutor who is involved with the pupils on a daily basis. Each group tutor is supported by a Pastoral Leader who has overall responsibility for the care and guidance of a particular Year Group. Mrs. Kellie Wynne-Jones is designated as having responsibility for promoting the educational achievement of Looked After Children. Mr. Daniel Wilde is the School’s Safeguarding and Child Protection Officer.
The School has contact with a number of support services and can provide help and advice in many ways. Parents/Carers are welcome in school at any time, by appointment, to discuss their child’s progress or to raise concerns. We also arrange evenings during the year for consultation and information.
Parents/Carers receive a full school report once a year. This gives a complete profile of the student including academic progress, attendance and pastoral information, sporting, musical and other accomplishments. Regular Progress Reviews also provide an up-to-date check on pupils’ progress and the information is passed on to parents and followed up by staff in the school.
Religion and Collective Worship
The teaching of Religious Education is based upon the Denbighshire Agreed Syllabus. It is non-denominational.
The school meets the statutory requirements for collective worship with weekly Year assemblies and daily discussions during tutor group time. A list of collective worship themes is available upon request.
Parents/Carers have the right to withdraw their children wholly or in part from the religious education and collective worship within the school and alternative provision can be made. Parents should contact the Headteacher to discuss their request.
