The Warriner School

Pastoral Care

We are very proud of the pastoral care offered to our students.  We believe that children will thrive academically if they are happy and secure individuals.  Whilst we cannot guarantee that all children will be happy for all the time that they are at school we do promise that we will work with parents/carers to do the best for their child and respond to all concerns raised.

I am so impressed with the way staff, and in particular tutors, relate to students.

The Tutor System

Tutors are the focal point for all pastoral care; a dedicated tutorial session ensures a settled start to every school day. This point of regular contact is supported by the school house system which provides numerous opportunities for vertical integration throughout our community. We believe it is really important that parents/carers and staff work together to support each child. The first point of contact is usually your child’s tutor. The most common way of getting in touch is by email. Alternatively you may leave a voicemail for the tutor via the main school switchboard. 

Tutor time provides an opportunity to forge friendship groups, complete house challenges and for students to receive key school messages through the bulletin. Alongside registration, tutors complete a uniform check each morning and inform parents/careers of any issues that arise. Progress and attainment is monitored with tutors after each reporting cycle through extended tutor time sessions. Students set personal goals based on report data, which help continue to move them forward.

In addition, all students follow a detailed tutorial programme specific to their year group, which encompasses weekly assemblies and supports the PSHE curriculum. Tutor sessions aim to provide stimulating and thought provoking activities relevant and appropriate to your child’s stage of development. Students in Years 7-10 complete a series of accredited tasks and activities through the PiXL Edge framework that develop students' attitudes, attributes and skills essential for employability and life. Students in Years 10-13 use iStudy principles to support activities in tutor time specifically around exam readiness.
