Pastoral care is very important at Coombe Boys' School.
If you have any concerns about your son’s well-being, you should discuss them with his tutor or the Head of Year ( 020 8942 1242 / firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Pastoral Team all monitor the pupils progress closely at Coombe Boys'. PSHE, which is part of the curriculum, provides help, guidance and opportunities for them to develop academically, socially and individually. Any problems or queries may be discussed with your son’s Tutor or Head of Year in school, by appointment, by telephone on 020 8949 1537, or by email on email@example.com.
The Head of Year can refer any learning, behavioural or medical problems to the Education Welfare Officer, the Educational Psychologist and the School Nurse, who visit regularly.
Every pupil is in a tutor group.
- The tutor group of around 28 pupils is led by a tutor, who is a teacher in the school.
- Tutors work hard to get to know the pupils in their group and so support them effectively.
- Pupils will spend at least two mornings a week with their tutor following a developed programme.
- You should contact your son’s tutor first if you have any concerns about his well-being (020 8949 1537/ firstname.lastname@example.org).
At Coombe Boys’ School we use a behaviour tracking system called SLEUTH. It is one of a variety of systems used throughout the country and enables the behaviour of individual boys or groups of boys to be monitored. Any incident of poor behaviour can be recorded and when the data is collated it is possible to identify patterns relating to particular lessons, subjects, times of the day, days of the week or weeks in the year. The outcomes can be produced in the form of graphs and charts. From this information different strategies can be used to help improve behaviour. The information gathered is discussed at weekly Head of Year meetings and is particularly useful when summarising individual pupil behaviour records. A whole school summary is undertaken at the end of each half term.
