The pastoral support at Heartlands Academy aims to permeate the curriculum by underpinning the teaching and learning that takes place. The pastoral support system is currently undergoing changes that will ensure that the support that is available is both bespoke and flexible enough to meet the needs of the students.
Each year group has a Learning Manager who leads a pastoral support team that is set up to provide innovative ways in which to deliver intervention and support for students across the board. These teams will have members of staff who will champion areas such as: gifted and talented students, those with attendance issues, raising the profile of student achievement within the year group and working with our vulnerable and SEND students. This will be done through one to one or, small group work sessions.
The aim will be to support each and every student towards becoming effective independent learners ready and prepared for the next stage in life.
