The Year Head is responsible for the overall discipline of students in their year group, following up on attendance and punctuality, and monitoring the general progress of all students. The Class Tutor is there in a pastoral role, providing one-to-one help and advice to students in their class and addressing any problems the student might be encountering. The Chaplain, Counsellors and Mentors also give support in these areas. The Home School Community Liaison Teacher is a support for parents, offering advice and strengthening the links between the home and the school.
