Pastoral Care

The health and wellbeing of our students are paramount to everything we do at Halliford. Providing a safe, caring foundation on which our students can flourish. We encourage students to develop emotionally, socially and physically and further develop their understanding of themselves.

Central to our pastoral care is the partnership we develop with families. When your child joins us, we will engage in a continual dialogue to ensure that the care we provide is collaborative, proactive and personal.

Our students are designated a House that will act as both pastoral support and also a community throughout their time at the School. Houses have a tutor in each year group and a Head of House. We have a Director of Student Welfare, Mr Matt Shales, who is responsible with the Deputy Head Pastoral and Heads of Houses for looking after the needs of our student body, including mental health support alongside our specialist school counsellor.

In addition, we have a Head of Year for Year 7, Miss Helen Foster, to ensure our new students have a positive transition into the School. Likewise, we have a Head of Sixth Form, Mr Andy Carroll, to support our Sixth Form students for those important final two years of their school career.

The most important figure in your child’s pastoral life will be their tutor, who will know them most closely and will forge excellent relationships with parents.
