At Orleans Park School we strive to support students as they develop into happy and well-rounded individuals, well-equipped for later life. We pride ourselves on creating a strong ethos of cooperation with families, which emphasises regular communication between home and school.
Each year group has a committed Year Team which is comprised of:
In addition to the above, we also have a devoted Pastoral Team including:
The majority of our pastoral team have completed the mental health first aid certification, meaning that the team are trained to have an in-depth understanding of mental health and factors that can affect the wellbeing of young people, and are equipped with the skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues. The mental health first aiders are trained in how to reassure and support a young person in distress and to guide them to the support they need.
All students receive pastoral support through their tutor group, assemblies and PSHE lessons.
Each tutor oversees the progress of their tutees and is responsible for managing their conduct. For this reason, families are encouraged to contact the tutor with any pastoral concerns initially as they have daily contact with the students and will be best placed to offer support and advice and respond to any concerns that you or the young person might have.
