Pastoral Care

Pastoral care will be a hallmark throughout the Academy. We want a professional, safe and caring environment. We would aim to care for our pupils and vulnerable groups by providing a safe environment for them to learn and work and by helping to identify children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm so that appropriate support and action can be taken to keep them safe, both at home and in the Academy.

Every student will be part of a tutor group, which in turn will become part of a House system as the new school grows. The tutor will be responsible for the pastoral care of those in their tutor group and will act as an extremely important point of contact between the Academy and parents.

Plan for Support for Families

We are pleased to introduce our programme of support for families at Great Western Academy. Our core value of care extends beyond the classroom door, and we would like to offer families this programme of support to help and encourage parents and carers to engage in their own learning, as well as supporting their child even further.

Below is our programme of support. Each session explains how you can join. If a session is sign up, a link will be sent out shortly in advance of the event. If a session is invitation only, but you feel it may benefit yourself or your child, please do get in touch.
