The school operates a vertical guidance system, There are four members of the Guidance Team - all Principal Teachers of Pupil Support.
The team has responsibility for Careers, PSE, Attendance, University and College Entrance, PSE, and Health Education.
At management level a Depute Rector, Mrs Barbara Lewis, has responsibility for Pupil Support on a whole school basis.
Pupils are allocated to a House and given a Pupil Support Teacher when they enrol in school. Children from the same family will have the same Pupil Support Teacher to make communication between home and school easier. There are 4 houses - Annan, Dryfe, Kirtle and Milk.
The Pupil Support Teachers establish a close link with the pupils in their care. They give advice on personal and school matters, and coordinate the Personal and Social Education Programme. The Pupil Support Teacher also monitors the pupils progress in school and communicates with parents should there be any concerns.
The Pupil Support Teachers are helped by the Register Teachers who meet the children daily and also deliver a weekly lesson of Personal and Social Education. Pupils find their Register Teacher and their Pupil Support Teacher invaluable sources of help and advice.
The Pupil Support Team maintains close links with a number of external agencies including Educational Welfare, Social Work and the Regional Psychological Services. Contact with these agencies is made through prior discussion and consultation with parents.
The Pupil Support Team is also heavily involved with Personal and Social Education. Pupils have a weekly period of Social Education with their Register Teachers. Personal Education includes personal and school issues such as friendship and bullying, Health Education, construction of a Progress File and Careers Education. There are also visiting speakers for the Health Education part of the syllabus.
