Pupil Support

The Range High School Pastoral System

In September 2021 our pastoral structure was changed from a house system (Blundell, Derby, Sefton and Weld) to a year group system led by a Head of Year and Assistant Head of Year, alongside Form Tutors. This enables a highly effective method of fully supporting our students.

The students are still assigned to houses, and these are used to support some enrichment and extra curricular activities during the year. Under normal circumstances, brothers and sisters are placed in the same House to facilitate the passing down of PE kit.

All pupils have a form tutor with whom they remain throughout their time at Range High School. This tutor plays a crucial role in monitoring welfare, conduct and progress and it would normally be your child’s tutor or Head of Year whom you should contact in the first instance if you need to discuss academic and/or social progress.

Wherever possible we ask parents to make an appointment prior to seeing a tutor or Head of Year. By so doing it will prevent your arrival at school coinciding with the time when the member of staff is teaching. In the event of an emergency we will, of course, make a member of staff available to see you.

Routine notes (to explain absences etc) should be addressed to the tutor, notes about Physical Education and Games to the Physical Education teacher and letters about other matters to the Head of Year, who will consult the appropriate member of staff, effect the necessary course of action, and keep the Headteacher informed.
