The Dormston School has a wider Pastoral Team working across the school to support students. This team includes Form Tutors, Heads of House, The Behaviour and Welfare Team (BWT), our SENCo and three Designated Safeguarding Leads. Form Tutors are key to pastoral support at Dormston and are a students’ first “port of call” for any concerns. Our Heads of House closely monitor the attendance, behaviour, achievement and well-being of all students within their care. In addressing any student concerns they will, as appropriate, liaise closely with or make referrals to a variety of outside agencies. These are made in consultation with the Senior Leadership Team, the BWT Coordinator, the SENCO and parents / carers as appropriate. Early intervention is key to supporting and resolving behavioural concerns. There are also Peer Mentors from Years 10 and 11 who work closely with younger students to support and guide them, as well as an Attendance Officer and a team of administrators to ensure the school day runs smoothly.
