The Role of Heads of Community
Pastoral Care is the foundation of our success at Royds Hall High School. Highly regarded by students and parents, our last OFSTED rated it as good with outstanding features.” All students are highly valued as individuals. The pastoral care provided for them is a strength of the school, and has some outstanding features.” - Ofsted, Nov 2008
Our clear aim is to provide a support network that will enable each student to work and achieve to his or her potential. Raising achievement is a key priority.
Heads of Community strive to:
- lead their team in pursuit of excellence.
- empower students with the basic skills, experiences, knowledge and attitudes that are required for work and leisure in a rapidly developing society so that students become active, confident and responsible members of the community.
- lead their team in maintaining high standards of attendance and behaviour and in maintaining an orderly atmosphere that supports the ethos of the school.
- provide an atmosphere in which all students are confident that they are safe, valued and respected.
- enable students to achieve their true academic potential by supporting the academic curriculum and the work of the Faculty and Curriculum Leaders.
- encourage students to respect others and the school environment.
- encourage students to be responsible members of the school community.
- strengthen the links between parent/carer and the school, recognising that education is a shared task involving students, home and the school.
