Pupil Support

The Range High School Pastoral System

We have a House system of which we are very proud. There are four houses, Blundell, Derby, Sefton and Weld. Each house is made up of two tutor groups from each school year, creating the feel of four smaller schools within one large school. In this way at least two members of staff will be very closely concerned with your child as part of a small group.

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 House whom you should contact in the first instance if you need to discuss academic and/or social progress.

Under normal circumstances, brothers and sisters are placed in the same House and in this way it will be possible for you to discuss the progress of two or more children with the same Head of House. Wherever possible we ask parents to make an appointment prior to seeing a tutor or Head of House. 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 House, who will consult the appropriate member of staff, effect the necessary course of action, and keep the Headteacher informed.
