School life revolves around an excellent Pastoral system. Management, teaching staff, parents and pupils all work together in partnership to ensure that each and every pupil develops to his/her full potential. Our aim is to produce well adjusted, content individuals who value education and who give of their best in each lesson.

A Head of Year is responsible for each year group. He/she manages a group of form teachers who look after the welfare of our pupils.

Attendance, punctuality and the homework diary are monitored on a weekly basis to ensure that high standards are maintained and appropriate intervention taken.

Our Positive Behaviour management system is one that focuses the ethic of hard work and good behaviour. A system of rewards is used to motivate and to celebrate success and endeavour.

Excellent Communication channels exist between home and school. Parents are encouraged to ring the office should they have any concerns. We communicate though letter, text, regular Statements of Results and full Reports. Each year group has a Parent teacher meeting per year. A mentoring programme and a one to one meeting with parents also take place at Key Stage Four to ensure that all pupils work towards their personal best.

Pupils are encouraged to accept responsibility for their learning, to set targets for themselves and to aim high.

A Personal and Social Education Programme is delivered through the subject area of Learning for Life and Work.

Counselling support is available, by request from parent or pupil. This may be triggered by bereavement, personal issues or medical reasons. Appropriate support will be put in place.

Our Child Protection designated teacher is Mr S Murray.  The deputy child protection teachers are Mrs F. Hartigan ,Mrs F. Mc Keever and  Principal Mrs R. Woods.  All staff members have a duty to refer disclosures of abuse/neglect to designated staff.
