At Alsop, we have a strong culture of pastoral care, which promotes a sense of family and belonging. Children who attend Alsop High School benefit from this sense of belonging.
What does Pastoral Care look like at Alsop High School?
Within each year group there is a team of form tutors who will take direct responsibility for the pastoral care of children within their form. This enables pupils to make good progress in their lessons and also helps to foster a sense of family and support. Your child's form tutor is your first point of contact, and can be contacted via the school's main switchboard on 0151 235 1200.
Each year group has a member of the Senior Leadership Team assigned to a year group, as well as a Head of Year who will support students both academically and pastorally, and an Assistant Head of Year who works closely with the Head of Year and form tutors to ensure all pupils are cared for and supported.
In addition we have an attendance team, who strive to ensure that students attend regularly and achieve excellent levels of attendance to school. The attendance team is a vital link between the school and parents.
Finally we have a team of Pastoral Support Mentors who provide support and take care of students' needs and work closely with year teams, various external agencies and the schools safeguarding officer to ensure all children who attend Alsop High School are safe and they receive support where necessary. Examples of these include CAMHS, YPAS, bereavement support, counselling, SEND.
