Pastoral Care

Samuel Ryder Academy is passionate about ensuring that all students are cared for and learn effectively in our supportive school community. We work in collaboration to enable our lines of communication to be student centred. In conjunction with students, parents/carers, governors and the wider community, we endeavour to make positive decisions that impact on student well-being and progress.

Behaviour is at the core of any pastoral system and Samuel Ryder Academy has both clear and high expectations for students to adhere to. The Consequence system for both the Primary and the Secondary phase can be downloaded on this page. Our behaviour system is focused on all students having the right to learn in a respectful environment; empowering students to build on positive attitudes and core values that will be long lasting skills required to be successful in their chosen next steps.

Positive reinforcement and rewarding students in accordance with our school values also underpins our pastoral system. We recognise students for their Achievement, Care and Excellence, in and out of lessons with a variety of rewards. Our reward system can be downloaded on this page and is used regularly to promote good decisions but also to highlight excellence encompassing our core school ACE values.

Our pastoral structure provides students with appropriate professionals in place to guide them and give advice with regards to specific needs. The role of the tutor plays an integral part of the pastoral system and all tutors will be directed by the Heads of Year.

We believe that our clear and consistent expectations support all of our school community to learn in a respectful environment, where they are cared for and gain justified recognition in line with our core values.
