Pastoral Care

We believe that students thrive in an atmosphere of respect, care and support. Teachers and support staff work hard to promote this ethos and to make sure that every individual student feels that they are a valued member of ‘Team Carleton’. High quality pastoral support is key to this aim and there is always someone who students can turn to for help and advice.

Our pastoral care system has a structure based on year groups which sees key members of the pastoral team working closely with form tutors to ensure we get to know every student. Happy students, achieve more!

Form Tutors

Each student at Carleton High School is carefully assigned to a tutor group. The form tutor sees students every morning and is a consistent point of contact, taking responsibility for guiding their personal, social and academic welfare and maintaining communication with parents. Form tutors develop a close relationship with their form members, building a solid relationship built on mutual respect. They develop a detailed understanding of each individuals personality and capabilities to ensure they support every form member to become the best version of themselves they can be.

Key Stage Leaders

Students’ academic progress at each Key Stage is also monitored by a Key Stage Leader who is on hand to ensure all students make outstanding academic progress.

Key Stage 3 Leader - Mr C Charlesworth
Key Stage 4 Leader - Miss R Morris

We encourage all of our students to challenge bullying. Students should report incidents, both inside and outside of school, to a member of staff who will tackle the issue promptly and sensitively. Bullying is defined as repeated, deliberate and hurtful behaviour that can take many different forms. If you have any concerns, please contact your child’s Form Tutor or Student Liaison Officer (SLO).

Wellbeing and welfare

If you have any concerns about attendance, punctuality or your child’s welfare, please contact your child’s Form Tutor or Student Liaison Officer (SLO).
