Senior - Pastoral Care

At Tranby, we are dedicated to providing a system of pastoral care that ensures each pupil is enabled to fulfil their academic and social potential. Academic and pastoral staff work closely to ensure that every pupil feels nurtured and supported throughout their school life. 

Our ethos promotes an environment of inclusivity where each and every pupil feels understood and valued as we are committed to ensuring their physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. 

Pupils receive pastoral support from their form tutors, Heads of Year, the Deputy Head Pastoral and the First Aid team. The School also has access to a professional counsellor. 

The care and guidance provided at Tranby aims to ensure our pupils are able to flourish and develop while being effectively supported to be self-disciplined, courteous, confident and resilient individuals.

The PSHE curriculum is delivered in 1 x 40 minute lesson per week plus three PSHE mornings; one in the Michaelmas Term, one in the Lent Term and one in Trinity Term.  The senior programme is drawn up by the PSHE Coordinator and Deputy Head Pastoral, and the programme is delivered by teachers and visiting speakers where appropriate. The PSHE Coordinator structures the programme with close reference to the PSHE Association Programme of Study to ensure that all requirements are covered by the end of each Key Stage.  An overview of 2023-24 can be seen HERE. Topics covered in the overview may be delivered at different times to provide flexibility to respond to current trends.
