The pastoral support for pupils in St Francis Xavier School is excellent. Each student is a member of a form class. The Form Tutor is always the main contact that any student has in school. To build the sense of community within the form, pupils share a number of activities throughout the year: weekly quizzes, preparing for form assemblies and a shared charity that they raise funds for throughout the year. They also get involved in the preparation, delivery and participation of collective worship.
Should pupils have any concerns they should always refer them to their form tutor, for them to deal with initially. If for any reason, the Form Tutor cannot resolve the issue, then they will refer it to the Pastoral team, which includes a Pastoral Support Officer, Assistant and Directors of learning for key stage 3 and key stage 4.
The role of the Director of learning is to oversee the pastoral welfare of thestudents in their year groups and to have an overview of student learning. It is the role of the Director of Learning to be aware of any barriers to learning that a student may have and to ensure that relevant support is available to that child. The Director of Learning also has a deputised responsibility for safeguarding.
The size of our school, allows us to know each of our children personally. In turn, this allows us to offer the very highest standards of pastoral care and guidance for them.
