Our aim at St Aidan's is to support every student to achieve their full potential and we believe that young people achieve best when they feel happy and cared for at school.
As well as providing the best learning environments and support for our students, we also operate a pastoral system that ensures they know where to seek any extra help they need, both in and outside the classroom.
Every student is placed into a form class, led by a form tutor.
In addition, we have an Assistant Principal, Pastoral - Mrs R Whillis - and a Assistant Principal, Behaviour for Learning - Miss V Mitchell.
Form tutors are the first port of call for any pastoral issues, both for students and parents. If necessary, issues can be passed up the line to the Year Leads and shared with either Assistant Principal dependent on the circumstance being dealt with.
Staff are also supported by Mrs K Reid, our special educational needs coordinator (SENCO), and social inclusion coordination Mrs J Knight, who liaises with external agencies as appropriate regarding student welfare.
