Pastoral Care at Severn Vale School

The Pastoral System

Every student has a tutor who will usually follow their group through until the end of their time at school.  Tutors work in a team under the direction of a non-teaching Head of Year (HOY) who will also remain with the year group throughout their five years. 

The pastoral structure is divided into Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 with a Key Stage Leader responsible for each. Members of the Senior Leadership Team support each Key Stage Leader. The SLT member with overall responsibility for Key Stage 3 is Mr Wakeford, supported by Mr Nichols and Mrs Littlegray. The SLT members with overall responsibility for Key Stage 4 are Mr Horton and Mrs Prescott.
