Pastoral Care 

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is of great significance to the staff of Lammas School. Academic progress is only part of the journey.  We create a safe and caring environment for our students.  If and when there is an issue, we have the following procedures which guide our actions.   We ask parents and carers to work with us in maintaining our pastoral policies.

In the event of any assistance required or problems and/or concerns pupils may encounter during the school day, help from the Form Tutor should be sought immediately. It is the responsibility of the Form Tutor to investigate and it is normally the case that problems are resolved as quickly as possible. Members of the Senior Management team are also available for advice and assistance both to pupils and parents, should the need arise. In the event of teacher’s concerns over children’s behaviour or academic progress, early intervention by Form Tutors often results in an immediate resolution and parents will be contacted personally or by telephone to discuss any issues.

Parents having any concerns or who wish to discuss their child’s progress should telephone the school office or come to the school lodge to arrange an appointment with the appropriate teacher. Parents requiring clarification of school organisation, policies or procedures should contact the Headteacher, whilst information on school fees and accounts should be made to the school office either in person or by telephone. As our teachers work very hard throughout the day on teaching and supervision duties, the end of a long day is not a good time for parents to engage in detailed conversations without first contacting the school office for a convenient appointment so that the right amount of time and attention can be provided in the appropriate environment.

Safeguarding our pupils is of utmost important to us at Lammas.  A copy of our Safeguarding of Children Policy can be downloaded from Our Policies section of our website..
