Pastoral and Wellbeing Support

Scalby School 2020 (22)At Scalby School we want every student’s to maximise their full potential, we see a network of pastoral care strategies as being vital to support students and to ensure that any concerns are quickly addressed.

All students are given access to a staff mentor on a daily basis. We see good mentoring as a key component to effective pastoral care.

All students are set new and challenging targets based on their achievement at their previous school, these targets are then reviewed 4 times a year as part of the schools’ Attitude to Learning . This allows us create an environment where we can maximise students’ attainment and achievement. Should a students’ progress fall below our expectations, appropriate actions will be discussed with both the student and their parent, to allow the student to get back on track. The Home School Agreement forms a vital part of ensuring students make good progress.

All students are set homework and should record this in their Student Planners. The amount and type will vary with the subjects they are taking. This work is of great importance and must be done fully and regularly. Parents are asked to assist with this by providing a warm, quiet place to study, if at all possible. If your son or daughter has difficulties with homework, please tell their staff mentor so that the matter can be attended to. Parents are asked to check that homework is being completed, and to check and sign their child’s planner on a regular basis.

Pastoral Staff

At Scalby School we offer a variety of care, guidance and support to students beyond the classroom. If you have any queries or concerns regarding your child there are a number of people that you may wish to contact. For any general concerns or information please contact your child’s Mentor in the first instance. There is also a Head of Year attached to your child’s year group whose role it is to oversee any behaviour, attendance or social issues. Subject Heads of Department will have a specific view of your child’s academic performance and progress across all his/her subjects.

The Pastoral Team are:

  • Mrs T Bielby - Senior Leader for Engagement & Safety
  • Mrs S Cammish - Year 9
  • Mrs A Colley - Year 8 (Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday)
  • Mrs N Davey - SENDCO
  • Mrs D Day - Year 10

Social Media, Mobile Phones and E-Bullying

There is increasing concern in schools nationally about incidents of e-bullying via text, email, Facebook etc. Parents are asked to be very vigilant over their son/daughter’s use of such sites. Please note it is now possible to put very tight controls on your Facebook page which blocks access to all but your own “friends”. The protection that school has in place is as follows:

  • School Email – any school emails containing offensive words or phrases are immediately re-directed to the Senior Management Team for appropriate action
  • Mobile phones/MP3 players are not permitted to be used on the school site. If a student does bring a phone/MP3 player into school it must be switched off and in the student’s bag for the duration of the school day. Staff will confiscate any mobile phone that is seen and it will be returned once a parent / carer visits the school reception to collect it.
