Pastoral Care Teachers

Pastoral Care

All staff in St. Mungo’s Academy have a clear responsibility for the welfare of young people.  All young people are assigned to a House Principal Teacher of Pastoral Care on entering the school.  This provides a vital link between home and school as the pastoral care teacher has an ‘all-round’ picture of a pupil’s progress and general health and well-being.  In most cases, a parent/carer’s first point of contact with the school will be the pastoral care teacher.

Further support for pupils is provided by class tutors in the first 10 minutes of each day and by the Support for Learning department as required.  A young person’s tutor teacher is also their Key Adult, who is allocated time throughout the year to discuss progress and any concerns. 

The Pupil Support Team will review pupils’ progress following each target update episode and engage in effective learner conversations.  They will agree interventions for individuals and groups with House teams, supporting staff as necessary.  Information which allows class teachers to differentiate learning resources and support young people is updated as necessary throughout the year, particularly for pupils with Additional Support Needs.   We are fully committed to meeting the needs of all pupils and hold regular meetings at which we plan for those who might benefit from additional support.  Full discussion is held with parents and carers and outcomes are planned and agreed in partnership.

Following each target update episode, the Pupil Support Team have an overview of pupil progress across the House, targeting those pupils who are a cause for concern.  They will then communicate agreed interventions with staff and seek support from parents/carers.

At subject choice time the Pupil Support Team consult with colleagues and support young people by providing advice on best options for future success and career aspirations.

Should a parent/carer require further information on support for learners please contact the Principal Teacher of Pastoral Care for the relevant House.
