Aims of the Academic and Pastoral TeamThe purpose of the Academic & Pastoral Team is to streamline and improve communication between the school and the parent body, raising both academic and pastoral issues. It will also serve to develop better links with the parent body in order to assist students with opportunities both within and outside of the classroom, such as work placements and Careers Week.
CoordinatorsIn order to streamline the lines of communication, it was agreed that the current team of class representatives would be reduced to one parent representative from each year group, from EY to Yr 13, plus a Primary Coordinator and a Secondary Coordinator, who will meet monthly with the SLT (Senior Leadership Team).
Irene Maher and Sarah Cooper were elected and agreed to be the Primary and Secondary Coordinators respectively
