Our Tutor System

With the challenges and pressures on young people increasing, excellent pastoral care is vital. We recognise this, and as a result, our top priority is the welfare and happiness of our pupils. Our tutor system focuses on this, giving plenty of time for individual attention and by monitoring the learning progress of each child.


Vertical tutors

This approach is strengthened by our additional vertical tutor group arrangement that consists of pupils from different year groups.

The aim is to give children in the lower years time to develop their thinking and ideas by observing the older children and therefore the possibilities that can unfold further up the school. The vertical system also calls upon the older children to show leadership and kindness in helping to guide their younger counterparts, as well as giving them all a sense of belonging to their own SCS 'family" throughout their time at the school.
