Behaviour and Pastoral Care
Your son will be well looked after. Our pastoral system ensures that all boys stay in their tutor groups for their whole time at the school, supported by their Directors of Learning, although they are not taught in these groups. This provides them with stability and security. Counselling and mentoring is available for boys who need support.
Each Year group has seven form groups. Form time provides the opportunity for development of literacy and a love of reading through our reading programme as well as the delivery of spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.
Praise and reward
Good work and behaviour are recognised and rewarded. Merits are issued to students throughout the school day and are recorded so that recognition can be given in assemblies and awards given at the end of each term. In celebration assemblies, we also recognise and reward the students who have made best progress and highest achievements in Assessment Points which take place twice a year for each Year group.
Merits are awarded for:
- A polite greeting
- An act of kindness
- Community spirit
- Helping others
- An outstanding artistic performance
- Outstanding listening
- An outstanding oral contribution
- Outstanding reading allowed
- Outstanding sports performance
- Outstanding written work
- Perseverance, resilience and effort
