happy pupilStudent Wellbeing

For excellent learning to take place, there needs to be a happy, harmonious environment and Bridgnorth Endowed School works hard to provide strong pastoral care to achieve this.

We take a holistic approach to our students’ development, helping them to attain, not only academic success, but also self-confidence and respect for others to become valued members of society.

Transition Process

Our concern for student wellbeing begins with the transition process. The move from primary to secondary education is a big step and we take great care to ensure that it's a smooth and enjoyable experience.

Vertical Tutoring

The vertical tutoring system in our three houses – Rowley, Hardwicke and Washbrook – brings students of all ages together, which encourages them to support one another and nurtures a sense of family. With daily contact, form tutors get to know students well and are able to monitor their welfare needs, closely supported by the pastoral team.

RSHE Programme

To equip students with appropriate knowledge and understanding of the social and emotional issues affecting young people today, our curriculum includes a comprehensive RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education) programme that runs throughout all school years.

The weekly sessions are designed to foster pupils' respect for themselves and others; promote equality and values difference; educate pupils about positive relationships; and help pupils understand how their actions can impact on their health, wellbeing and safety.

Alternative Provision

Central to the pastoral care plan, is the need to maintain all children in full time education and ensure they have access to a broad and varied curriculum. This is vital, not just for students and their families, but also the wider community.

With this in mind, the school has established a solid alternative provision process and runs a number of effective interventions across three venues to support students in times of need.

Good Communication

The basis of our overall pastoral strategy is to promote good relationships between teachers, support staff, our students and parents, as well as building close partnerships with external agencies. This is achieved through an ‘open door’ policy and effective, regular communication.
