Pastoral Team at Welland Park Academy
Your child’s wellbeing is a top priority at Welland Park Academy. We believe strongly that all students can be successful when provided with an environment that is caring, encouraging, and optimistic. Welland Park Academy prides itself on being a happy, caring environment, which supports students and enables them to flourish and succeed.
Pupils at Welland Park know they are listened to, students communicate with teachers and staff through the active student council as well as our dedicated student mentor team. This team signposts students to certain members of staff for support.
It is our belief that pastoral care is a shared responsibility involving each member of the school community. We value parental views and believe good communication between parents, pupils, and the school lies at the heart of each child’s development. The promotion of wellbeing, mutual respect, and resilience are the foundation of our student support network.
