Laurelhill Community College has a tradition and history of providing a caring learning environment for all of our pupils. Our pastoral care system places our pupils at the centre of everything we do. Positive relationships are developed between the pupils and the staff who care, support, develop and challenge them to achieve their full potential on a daily basis. Our pupil centred pastoral care system strives to break down the barriers to learning by putting in place programmes and support to develop your child’s social and emotional needs.
The Pastoral Care structure in Laurelhill is overseen by the Deputy Principal and a Senior Teacher for Pastoral Care. Year 8 pastoral needs are looked after by a team of Form Tutors who report to the Head of Transition. In Middle and Senior College, pupils pastoral needs are addressed by the Form Tutor who is supported by a Head of Year. The College has a designated Safeguarding team who respond to all aspects of Child Protection in support of our young people.
