    Pastoral Overview

    The health, welfare and well being of the young people in our care is of the utmost importance to us and the school has a range of expertise to ensure students feel secure, well-supported and looked after. Ofsted judged us ‘outstanding’ in this area.

    The primary point of contact is always the student’s form tutor who knows each student in their tutor group well. More serious pastoral issues would be dealt with by the student’s Learning Coordinator (Head of Year) or deputy. The pastoral system at Oakgrove is overseen by Mr Ian Boon - Senior Assistant Headteacher.

    Our Values and Ethics programme is a highly structured and comprehensive course covering much more than the traditional personal, social and health education. It embraces environmental awareness, theories on learning, citizenship education and much more. The weekly themes of Values and Ethics lessons are echoed in the school’s assembly topics.
